Whare Taonga: Alexis Neal and Rona Osborne

A collaborative installation, Whare Taonga is a living breathing space where ideas of Whakapapa, Tikanga Maori and the sense of place the Wharenui structure forms. The central idea of the project is to investigate and celebrate the human presence within sacred spaces such as the wharenui. Ideas on cultural, generational and gender issues are explored through a diverse, multidisciplinary approach - including relief printing, weaving and textile.

“Imbued with the wairua of the past the blanket forms intimate associations. Often these are feminine associations, that of motherly love, childbirth, or illness. Women are the keepers of knowledge, passed from mother to child…” - Rona Osborne, 2008.
