Two of New Zealand’s leading jewellers, Warwick Freeman and Karl Fritsch, toured the country in search of works that illustrated the nature of adornment and what it has meant to New Zealanders.
The result was an exhibition that travelled to Munich, Germany in 2014, showing later at the Dowse Art Museum in Lower Hutt, Wellington.
The show has been reworked for it’s latest appearance at the Auckland Art Gallery, where paintings, photographs, sculptures and drawings are also incorporated.
It’s a fascinating exhibition that deserves multiple viewings to fully appreciate the clusters of objects and artworks.
On show at the Auckland Art Gallery until November 2015.
