Kahoa Kakala | Sione Monu

Friday December 8, 2017 to Sunday February 18, 2018
Objectspace, Auckland

‘Kahoa Kakala’ is a solo exhibition by Māngere-based artist Sione Monu, centred on Monu’s experimental work with nimamea’a tuikakala; or the Tongan fine arts of flower designing using the form of kahoa or Tongan garland. Weaving connections between place, people and the different environments in which he works, Monu’s exhibition brings his expanded family and aspects of the spiritual and ecological contexts of art-making in Tonga and Tāmaki Makaurau together in this ongoing series.
