Kolose: The Art of Tuvalu Crochet 2 is the second version of a show of the same name that was first exhibited at Māngere Arts Centre from May to June 2014. Kolose or crochet is one of the key art forms practiced by some Tuvalu women, particularly from the island of Niutao, here in Aotearoa New Zealand and back in their homeland.
Kolose works are worn at church, on special occasions, as part of female dance costumes, and as casual wear. They are gifted during special occasions and used to add a unique Tuvaluan décor. This demonstrates the symbiotic relationship between art and culture in Tuvaluan life.
