Ano Me He Wharepuungawerewere is a Maori proverb that likens a beautifully carved or weaved house (Wharenui), to that of a beautifully and intricately weaved spider's web. This whakatauki can also be used to express or denote the ideas of a house full of spider webs, collecting dust etc.
Ano me He Wharepuungawerewere began as a woven sculptural object for Changing Threads 2021, inspired by the waiata Te Moemoea o Whakatū by Hone Nuku, by contemporary artist Samara Davis and has evolved into her first solo exhibition of intrinsically made objects exploring the marae and the whāriki (woven mat) as places for connection, understanding, Turangawaewae and the sharing of knowledge. You are invited to an artist talk Saturday 23rd October 1pm and you are invited for community engagement in an ongoing work with Samara every Tuesday and ongoing during the exhibition.
Unfortunately due to social distancing restrictions we have had to cancel the opening. Stay tuned for a closing celebration on November 6th
