Forgotten Things
16 March - 6 April 2019

This latest series Forgotten Things was developed for the drawing room at 'The Elms', a historic house museum in Tauranga, for a collaborative exhibition with Tauranga Art Gallery, of the same name. Six artists were invited to make work in response to a given space in the historic house and its contents. Re-imagined in the gallery without the accompanying objects and architectural references, this series talks universally about the translation and dislocation of material culture from its origins as it exists out in the wider world. Forgotten things without their forgotten things.
