Feeger, who is currently living and working in Port Moresby, has become part of a new generation of PNG artists whose work provokes critical awareness about social and political realities in PNG. In 2009 he was awarded the inaugural Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust and Pacific Cooperation Foundation Artist Residency in Auckland, Aotearoa/New Zealand, and has exhibited extensively throughout the Pacific Island region. His exhibition Port Moresby Market Collection is a visual exploration of evolving grassroot economies and neighborhood markets of Port Moresby. His residency is cosponsored by the UHM Department of Art and Art History, the UHM Center for Pacific Islands Studies, and the UHM Student Activity and Program Fee Board.
