Kofukofu Koloa: Dagmar Dyck
11 March – 9 April 2016
In this installation a bed stacked with koloa was the central focus, paying homage to how Tongans value their pieces of koloa (fibre arts produced predominantly by women). These objects include ngatu, fala, kiekie and kato alu. Print holds an essential place in Dyck’s art practice; the koloa were accompanied by wall sized printed ngatu installation on paper, a hand woven paper ta’ovala, a hand woven paper fala, and paper kiekie strips, all made from hand printed woodcuts, relief prints and screenprints on paper.
