Kari Morseth: hic incipit pestis

hic incipit pestis_3

hic incipit pestis
(here begins plague)

With plagues and their resulting ruin, who can know what potential is lost.

Awhiowhio: Black Trinity, is a response to the plague of spiritual colonisation.
Indigenous beliefs and practices outlawed and repressed, the dark trinity sweeps through,
wearing the white of the clerical collar.

Black Plague: Ocean View, responds to the new plague we have poured into our oceans.
Plastics filling the bellies of marine life entering our food chain and water supplies.

The works in the White Box were selected for and exhibited in Changing Threads
Contemporary NZ Textile Fibre Art Awards, 2022

Kari Morseth is a textile artist working primarily with plant materials using traditional weaving and
basketry techniques to make contemporary sculpture, jewellery and installations. Sustainable
practice is central to her work.
