‘Sihot’e Nioge: When Skirts Become Artworks’

Exhibition and Shows

21 Aug 2022 to 9 Oct 2022 Once Only Event

‘Sihot’e Nioge’ reveals the centrality of nioge, painted, and sihot’e, appliquéd, beaten bark cloths in Omie culture and life from the first Omie man and woman who arrived on the earth until today. Working from the remote mountain rainforests of Oro Province, not so far from Kokoda, Papua New Guinea, the Omie Tapa artists continue to develop the most colourful and compositionally diverse, bark cloth art in the Pacific region, using all natural products from their vast, rainforest homelands.
