Indigenous Hawaiian artist Noah Harders takes a whimsical strategy to style in Moemoeā, his initially institutional exhibition opening upcoming week at the Honolulu Museum of Artwork. Translating to desire or fantasy, the show’s title presents a conceptual, political, and aesthetic foundation for Harders’ extensive array of performs that change crustacean shells, skeletal stays, lush jade flowers, and other natural issue into sculptural wearables. The fashions are intricately manufactured and mask most of the artist’s experience as he captures their sprawling varieties as a result of daring self-portraiture, which he describes as fostering a link involving himself and the identified objects. He explains:

When I place on these masks, I experience like I am embodying the spirit and essence of seemingly standard components that can be found about us…These pieces are a way for us to action out of the severe truth we are consumed by each and every working day and only have a moment to aspiration and really feel influenced by what surrounds us on this earth.

Moemoeā runs from November 3, 2022, to July 23, 2023. Dive into Harders’ comprehensive archive of headdresses on his website and Instagram.
