Tino Rangatira Tanga

Leilani Kake's new video installation is called Tino Rangatira Tanga.

She says, "My beautiful father, Richard Kake, passed away this April 2008. He is a man that embodies Tino Rangatira Tanga, and surrounded himself with the love of music, whanau and Te Ao Maori."
Tino Rangatira Tanga is a poignant and emotionally loaded three screened video installation that speaks to the power of waiata / Maori song depicting a beautiful homage to an amazing man and the community and cultural landscape he draws from.

Leilani Kake's 2007 work, Ariki is in the group exhibition, Le Folauga organised by Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust, opening at the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts in Taiwan on 13 December 2008. Le Folauga runs until 5 April 2009.
