Te Hononga o te Aroha – An Exhibition

Jan 15 - Feb 10

Presented by: The Incubator Creative Hub

“Hononga” – union, connection, relationship, bond. “Aroha” – love, affection, compassion, empathy, charity, sympathy. “Whakapapa” – genealogy, genealogical table, lineage, descent. Te Hononga o te Aroha – The connection of love through whakapapa, mahi raranga and toi (arts). A collection of weaving by Sandra Silby and Aroha Kapi reflecting connections.

Introducing “Te Hononga” Sandra Silby (main weaver) and Māmā of the mother/daughter (Aroha Kapi) duo “Te Hononga o te Aroha” which in te reo Māori translates “The connection of love” A love connection not only bound by whakapapa, but that of a love and appreciation for mahi toi (arts), mahi raranga (flax weaving) and the sharing of this gift of knowledge and passion with all that are open to it. Sandra Silby although still early on in her raranga (weaving) journey has very instinctive hands that are not only guided by the support of her mentors but carried and guided by her tūpuna.

This exhibition is a feature event in the 2021 He Iwi Kotahi – Waitangi Day event at the Historic Village – Tauranga.
