With Madeleine Gifford
Available by appointment only.
Hear about exhibition highlights and behind-the-scenes stories with Curator and Exhibitions Manager Madeleine Gifford.
The duo sent packages, emails and handwritten notes initially, before embarking on a visit North in the Raumati (summer) season that sparked their artistic collaboration through shared making.
Bringing together material fragments, handmade using the surface techniques of Hiapo and European cotton and linen rag, they worked together through a playful, intuitive process. Each would collage their individual responses in turns, guided by growth, customary knowledge, whenua and the sincere practice of sharing taonga. In Return presents their collaborative suite of mixed-media works.
