Ano me He Wharepuungawerewere is a Maori proverbial saying that likens a beautifully carved or weaved house ( Wharenui), to
that of a beautifully and intricately weaved spiders web. This whakatauki can also be used to express or denote the ideas of a house full of spider webs, collecting dust etc.
‘Ano me he Wharepuungawerewere’, began as a weaved sculptural object which was entered into Changing threads 2021, with
the intention to extend on these ideas through an exhibition series, with the hopes to raise discussion around reactivating Marae.
“Kua Kii nga Whareherere ahakoa, anoo me he Wharepungawerewere”
Our prisons are full even tho, behold we have beautifully carved and weaved houses.
