About the exhibition

Conceived as a response to Sebastian Clarke’s essay, Kauri From The Loom, on the curious case of the missing weaving work, Woven Kauri (1954), by Colin McCahon and Ilse von Randow, Bronwyn Lloyd has created 28 needlepoint charms which will be on display at the McCahon House Museum. The charms will be on a woven panel by Kathryn Tsui, recreating the striped ground of Woven Kauri . 

About the artist talk

This talk looks at Woven Kauri (1954) as a case study on how we can acknowledge and celebrate parts of our art history that have been lost (or remain missing), while expanding the ways in which we think about our cultural heritage, beyond the heritage resource itself. A discussion of memorable craft collaborations and the translation from one medium to the next will follow, as well as collectively speculating on the whereabouts of Woven Kauri (1954).
