Falevai Flava is a collaborative art project created by mother and daughter Sulieti Fieme’a Burrows and Tui Emma Gillies. In 2014, they travelled to Tonga to work on a large scale ngatu (tapa) making project in Burrows’ home village of Falevai.

The art of making ngatu had not been practised in the village for several decades and the artists worked with the women of Falevai to revive the tradition, by producing two large ngatu. Falevai Flava shows the stunning result of this unique collaboration through the display of both ngatu, with accompanying moving-image work providing insight into the story.
