We consider contracting and expanding curvature flows in $\Ss$. When the flow hypersurfaces are strictly convex we establish a relation between the contracting hypersurfaces and the expanding hypersurfaces which is given by the Gau{\ss} map. The contracting hypersurfaces shrink to a point $x_0$ while the expanding hypersurfaces converge to the equator of the hemisphere $\mc H(-x_0)$. After rescaling, by the same scale factor, the rescaled hypersurfaces converge to the unit spheres with centers $x_0$ \resp $-x_0$ exponentially fast in $C^\un(\Ss[n])$.
