Recently opened at Artstation is the exhibition, “Cupboards: a family geography and material history” curated by the Domestic Craft and Contemporary Art Group. Open until 13 April this show explores a potent theme and has had a very positive reception from those visiting it, and featured in Saturday’s NZ Herald (Weekend supplement). My small tissue paper mache work was a reflection on the stored histories often found at the back of the family medicine cabinet.
The work expands on ‘Intrusions’ – four branches grafted onto Pohutakawa trees at Fort Takapuna as part of Sculpture OnShore 2012.
As Narracje takes place at night, this new work will change in mood and association, and obviously lighting will be a significant element.
