FAKA FO`OU - Falevai Flava (first glimpse) - Tui and Sulieti

Added to MyNight


A collaboration between two Tapa Artists with something very special in common… their genes. Tui Emma Gillies is the daughter of Sulieti Fieme’a Burrows, who was born and grew up in Falevai in the Tongan island group of Vava’u. Together they returned to Falevai to work with local women in creating two large Tapa pieces. In the process they resuscitated a heritage art practice that had died in the village many years ago. The exhibition will include one of the Ngatu, Kupesi and other small works.
