Group Show, August 1-September 14
My preference to exhibit my pieces is I don’t put them in a frame or behind glass. I think the viewer gains more from the kapa being out. People can smell it. They can see how it moves when a gust of air goes through the room. They can touch it when no one else is looking. Kapa is fragile and won’t last forever. Exhibiting in this fashion can mean pieces may deteriorate a bit faster. Traditionally kapa was used daily by Hawaiians. It was worn, provided warmth, protection, and was used in ceremonies. It’s not something you covet. I think as a part of our current revival of kapa it is vital for pieces to be out and experienced as much as possible.
