- Working across the disciplines of jewellery, craft, and object-making, Matthew McIntyre-Wilson re-articulates the forms, patterns and practice of raranga whakairo (plaiting) with precious metals.
His practice explores the whakapapa (genealogy) of weaving, in Aotearoa and the Pacific, and also in Europe, Asia and the United States of America. As part of this engagement, McIntyre-Wilson has researched the collections of Māori taonga in museums, seeking to reconnect the objects with their maker and their lived history.
