Maureen Lander: Flat-Pack Whakapapa
Maureen Lander: Flat-Pack Whakapapa

Just as whakapapa (genealogy) reflects someone’s lineage and biology, the starting line of a kete determines how its patterning and size will develop. In Flat-Pack Whakapapa, Maureen Lander has created three installations that explore the connections between whakapapa and raranga (Māori weaving). Approaching these forms of human connection from a mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) perspective, Lander engages with weaving techniques—including whiri (braiding) and whakairo (patterning)—and the concept of aho tuku iho (ancestral lines handed down continuously from generation to generation).

Envoys Onwards
Envoys Onwards

In 1993, the Association of Women Artists initiated a celebratory exhibition of postcards to mark the 100-year anniversary of the winning of emancipation by New Zealand women. The exhibition was held in 1996 at what was then called Lopdell House Gallery (now Te Uru). Now, in 2018, in the 125th anniversary year of that achievement, Te Uru and representatives of the association will be re-showing the original postcards and inviting a new generation of women artists to create postcards to show alongside the original set.
