Summary NeoGeoNative is about my uneasy relationship with the appropriation of Indigenous motifs in contemporary fashion to which I am both attracted and repelled. Cheap 'triba' leggings that I have purchased from places like Sportsgirl, Glassons and the Preston Market have been edited into a kind of hypnotic/seductive kaleidoscope of colour and patterns - that reference the Melanesian, Polynesian and Native American designs that they appropriate - but at the same time are completely decontextualised, re-emerging as neon mandalas and other sacred geometry.
