Anaheke Metua has been apart of Lines in the Sand events since 2011 as artist, teacher, weaver and fibre sculptor. The 2014 Convolution: A Woven Sculptural Installation featured Anaheke’s work.
The Exhibition Convolution featured the Woven Sculptures of Casselle Mountford and Anaheke Metua who are contemporary fibre artists. Each artist explored traditional methods of weaving natural fibre and other materials to create Individual site specific Installations in the gallery.
This exhibition was a branch project of Lines in the Sand: Art in the Environment festival that took place on North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) each year in June. Both artists have been artists in residence during the Lines in the Sand Festivals, Casselle Mountford in 2009 and Anaheke Metua in 2011.
The artist’s individual Installations shared in and reflect the creative spirit and environmental sensitivity at the heart of Lines in the Sand Festival. This will be demonstrated through the experimental use of natural and found materials and in the largely ephemeral nature of the work. The artists will also source materials and draw inspiration from the unique natural environment of North Stradbroke island
