Hunt - Enjoy Public Art Gallery


Karen Adams, Sonia Bruce, Gabrielle McDonnell and Angela Meyer

Curated By Angela Meyer
Opening Celebration Tuesday 15 February 6pm
February 16 – March 4
Artist Talk Tuesday 22 February 6pm

After a busy and exciting period of travel and the staging of a series of highly successful art exhibitions and events overseas, Angela Meyer returns to New Zealand bringing with her an exhibition of work by four female artists from here and abroad. Hunt draws on several of the tenets of the Arte Povera movement; displaying open-ended experimentation towards materials and processes and scepticism towards overly intellectualised concepts, completed with a light, delicate and human touch.

Visitors to the gallery will be greeted with the sound of dogs barking in a work by Gabrielle McDonnell, view the photography of 'new topographer' Karen Adams and be immersed in an installation incorporating everyday materials by Sonia Bruce. Playing with the fun and the ephemeral, Hunt promises to be an elegant and seductive experience.
