'Te Kauae Ki Runga' speaks to my very personal life-long journey towards receiving my moko kauae from my whanaunga Rangi Kipa in 2019.
This work was first shown in Paraukau at Waiokura Pā as my final exhibition for my Masters in Māori Visual Arts in October last year and while various elements have been shown a couple of times since, locally and in Te Whanganui ā Tara, this is the first time the whole instillation will be presented together again, with some new work which also speaks to the kaupapa.
A (Re)Opening will be held on Sunday 9 January 2022 from 4-6pm and it will be open from Monday 10 January to Saturday 5 February. The gallery does not require Covid vaccine passports, so if you require a vaccine passport only viewing please let me know.
Nau mai, haere mai whānau.
