Strangling space

When a collection of works is in response to a gallery space the volume and shape of the space can (potentially) over-ride/rule the works, if we let it. What if we "strangled the space" and bent it to our will rather than being beholden to it? The space becomes no...

“Zig-Zag”

My personality is one that thrives on order. While not a precise person by nature I do like things to be "tidy". There's something about a zig-zag that fits perfectly with my desire for order and my inability to subscribe to strict precision. Terhi Tolvanen has...

We have come to the end.

Two years have passed and handshake4 has come to an end. It has been a great two years full of interesting people, exhibitions and workshops. The mentorship program is definitely a valuable part of the handshake project. I would say that the relationship I build with...

CODA

My intent with these 3 artists is to question my own practice with a few of each artists highlights. Lucy - the ritual of her objects giving greater strength. Paul - his rugged strong and questioning approach to making. Ruddt - expressing his experiences on journeys...

So juicy!

I’m feeling beyond lucky to be starting my third Handshake experience. HS1 (Prentice and Prodigy) emboldened me to develop work that honours my real-life preoccupations. HS3 (Concept and Conception) had me bouncing around the far fringes of expanded jewellery...

Initiating Actions/Te Uru

How can things indicate to a human what they what them to do or initiate specific actions? I’m interested in the ideology of objects being used as ‘Actants’; how they can be put in a certain place or paired with other things to make a person act in a particular way....
