The beauty of taro is being showcased in an unusual form in a Cook islands art exhibition aimed at celebrating women.

'This Woman's Work' is showing at the Bergman Gallery in Rarotonga and features colourful glass taro vases in a performance installation that includes contemporary dance and a taro-patch inside the gallery.

New Zealand based Cook-Islands artist Niaval Ngaro created the glass taro sculptures and collaborated with performance director Dione Joseph who created the dance work installation.

Ms Joseph spoke to Indira Stewart.
