Polynesia

East meets West, meets the Pacific.  New Zealand's finest couture artists teamed up with Derek Elvy to create this vibrant exhibition. Derek is passionate about supporting and working with other artists.  Lindah and Derek have a long history of creating outstanding creative work.  The collection shown by Lindah Lepou was recently sacrificed in a burning ceremony - the collection was burnt one by one at Red Rocks in Wellington.  The powerful event was filmed and played to a packed (then shocked) Ballroom.  Te Papa have a select few pieces of the Pacific Collection that will remain taonga of the museum for all the world to cherish.
