Decolonise is an exhibition of textiles by Wellington-based artist DandalooSu, that explores the importance and value of native fauna and flora in agricultural and fashion industries. Drawing on cultural practices of native fibre crafts, knowledge of Gilgai’s (small water holes) and three pivotal dates where imported fibres were introduced into the Australian landscapes, DandalooSu fashion garments, headdresses and ornaments made with native materials is an attempt to highlight our current patterns of consumption. Decolonise is a body of work that aims to reclaim and elevate the use of native fibres within the textile world, and draw awareness to the environmental impact of their modes of production.
