The installation takes the form of 1880s style gowns constructed from cream blankets (a metaphor for dressed muka), adorned in a way that references cloaks from that period.
Her choice of material is deliberate.
Most of the blankets are salvaged from opportunity shops, each with its own history.
Each of the works are named for three types of cloaks held in high regard by Māori: the elegant and austere kaitaka; the korowai, adorned with black cords that move along with the wearer; and the ngore, decorated with pompoms or running loops.
