Pillars of Belonging

“Connection is why we are here, it gives purpose and meaning to our lives”.

Brene Brown

Pillars of Belonging reference my location as a New Zealander, my turangawaewae: the place where I stand tall and feel connected.

I use silk and transparent fabrics to show the vulnerability and the fragility of our relationships and how we must not take for granted our connections to others but appreciate and nurture how truly precious they are.
