The awakening

Picture by Rebecca Grunwell

Recent works by Fiona Collis, Melanie Tahata, Izzy Te Rauna feature in the exhibition OHO at Tairawhiti Museum.

Moving imagery on walls at both ends of the gallery is made up of Ko Ura, Tahata’s “love letter to the universe” on one wall Tahata’s large scale, fluid, nebulous constellations on the other. Among Te Rauna’s tukutuku pieces is Nga roimata a Tamanui te Ra. Made from keikie, pingao and pine the work is an adaptation of the Roimata Toroa pattern.

Collis’s traditional muka kakahu, cloaks made from the fibre extracted from harakeke, are exhibited in front of large digital prints of details seen in woven pieces.

OHO runs until June 9.
