Curator Robert Leonard remarked ' In the Four Horsemen photos, he matches the dark riders (Famine, Conquest, War, and Death) with the seasons (Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer). Tuita’s avatars wear elaborate headdresses and superhero capes. One wears a blue skull mask, another wears footy shorts and is draped in diaphanous pink tulle, queering the iconic look of Aussie yobs draped in Australian flags.
