‘Dance of the seven veils’ brings together recent photographs and video works centered on the figure of ‘Salome’ - a fictitious character Kihara’s has been performing since 2002. ‘Salome’ is inspired by a photograph entitled ‘Samoan Halfcaste’ (1885) taken by NZ photographer Thomas Andrew; and references a play written by Oscar Wilde. Kihara employs the Samoan dance of taualuga as a medium and mode of artistic enquiry into the postcolonial present.

Kihara’s work was presented at Asia Pacific Triennial; Auckland Triennial and the Sakahàn Quinquennial. Her work is held in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
