A bed stacked with family koloa is at the centre of this installation that pays homage to not only the fibre arts produced predominantly by Tongan women but also the ceremonial status that koloa maintains within a Tongan societal context. The koloa includes items such as ngatu, fala and ta’aovala and is accompanied by responsive art pieces such as a wall-sized printed ngatu installation on paper.
Featuring Dagmar Dyck
