Threads that bind – Artefact

ARTEFACT_Threads That Bind_May-Ana Tirikatene-SullivanIf you haven’t yet watched Maori TV’s wonderful series Artefact, the good news is that it’s only half way through, it’s all online, and you really won’t want to miss the episode scheduled for 28 May, Threads that Bind.

May-Ana Tirikatene-Sullivan (above) introduces us to the politically significant wardrobe of her mother, the late Hon Whetu Tirikatene-Sullivan; artists Tame Iti and Rosanna Raymond talk about  power dressing and style, and designer Kiri Nathan about her high-fashion label.

Each has a considered conversation with the series presenter, Dame Anne Salmond, about how heritage and modern techniques work together to make their  statements. And there are lots of gorgeous shots of the garments and objects in question. And Veranoa Hetet talking weaving, and the Soldiers Rd Portaits studio. If you missed it, that’s what on demand is for.

Artefact is on Maori TV on Mondays, 8.30 or online on demand
