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).
