Angelica Mesiti (showing as part of the 5th Auckland Triennial) creates performance-based videos driven by her interest in performed cultural practices as expressions in a given place and community. In Citizens Band, Mesiti presents us with four characters who play the traditional instruments and rhythms of their homelands against a backdrop of their adopted Western homes.

The videos are riveting and the music haunting, like cries for lost identity in the din of a globalised world.
