Robyn Kahukiwa is an important NZ Maori artist, with a body of work which has established and benchmarked an evolution in the development of traditional and contemporary Maori art.

Robyn Kahukiwa’s new exhibition “Upoko Tapu” (Sacred Head) is extremely timely and poignant considering recent exhibitions and developments involving the display of Maori portraiture. The Tapu Head 2017 series is based on traditional Maori Tikanga (culture), where the head of a person is believed to be tapu or sacred.

Kahukiwa has used the "huia" feathers to emphasise the tapu of the head because huia feathers are taonga (treasures handed down from our ancestors).

For more information and images on this exhibition please view the Warwick Henderson Gallery website.
