For The Whanau

17 November 2007 - 20 December 2007

For The Whanau is a Window installation for Objectspace. These works in whale tooth were made by Kipa especially for his family as an heirloom collection. They were not created as exhibition pieces and Objectspace is privileged to exhibit them. Rangi Kipa works in the fields of taa moko, sculpture (wood, stone, bone, corian) and ethnographic taonga. In all of these fields he has established an international reputation for innovation while constantly drawing inspiration from his Maori heritage.
Rangi Kipa is represented in the collections of Auckland Museum, Dowse Art Museum, Puke Ariki and Te Papa. He was awarded the 2006 Creative New Zealand Craft/Object Art Fellowship and his Whare whakairo RADIARE is currently on exhibition at the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art.
