Influences from around the motu and across the sea are woven together in new ways, into a vibrant kete of diversity through canvas, fibre, paper, harakeke, wire, a large digital screen and wood.
“Five contemporary artists from around the region have come together, each weaving their innovation and story-telling into one space,” says artist Radha Sahar. “Māori traditions sit alongside European and other influences.”
Debra Bustin - known for her striking and colourful works in the Te Papa collection
Hori from Ōtaki – with his trademark political incorrectness and aroha
Margaret Hill – with woven pieces based on techniques learned in Japan
Charles Bagnall – displaying a Swedish weaving loom
Radha Sahar – with three-dimensional twisted and woven canvases
According to Radha, the arts of weaving take us back into times immemorial. “Peoples and cultures all over the globe have perfected these skills in so many different ways. Weaving connects us, and joins diverse worlds together.
