KOLOSE: The Art of Tuvalu Crochet by Fafine Niutao i Aotearoa

27 Jan – 26 Feb 2017

Fafine Niutao i Aotearoa is a collective of Tuvalu women from Niutao Island, based in New Zealand. They work together producing Kolose: Tuvaluan crochet, which take form in tops, dresses, petticoats and are distinctive features on wall hangings. Kolose illustrates the adoption and continual development of art practices whilst highlighting the supporting structure of women as knowledge holders. Often gifted, the brightly coloured and free-styled patterns of Kolose portray the love for one’s community, culture and island.
