Hape’s strong passion draws attention to traditional and contemporary weaving techniques in the context of Maori costume, especially as it relates to kakahu (cloaks). Hape acknowledges her family, kinship group, and community as strong informants in her thinking and inspiration for creating artwork. For her current project, Hape is collaborating with glass artist Te Rongo Kirkwood, a collaboration that challenges each artist's practice and medium yet draws a parallel to the weaving of natural material.
