ONEPŪ (New Zealand)
1 Jan 2020 - 31 Dec 2022
Onepū is an expression of mana wahine; the intrinsic spiritual power of women, and is inspired by a Kāi Tahu tradition as told by Teone Taare Tikao about six atua wahine (female deities) who control and release the principal winds of the world.
Sweeping movements melted into statuesque figures as the world was held in delicate balance through the use of Taonga Pūoro (traditional Māori instruments) and celestial lighting ..............the overall aesthetic of Onepū was mesmerising.
