Manu Aute Rere Runga Hau

Nikau Hindin and Rongomai Grbic-Hoskins
From March 4th

An exhibition of new works by Nikau Hindin that grows out of Te Uru Aute, her apprenticeship programme with teina Rongomai Grbic-Hoskins.

‘Manu Aute: Rere Runga Hau signals a transition in my practice as I begin to explore manu aute, kites made from aute, and the expansive possibilities of working collaboratively with Rongomai. Kites symbolise joy and leisure time but can also bring foreboding warnings. I think the duality of these signs reflects the double-edged needs of our current social climate.’

-Nikau Hindin
