Natalie Guy: Then and Then Again
22 January to 24 February 2018
Gallery Session with the artist: Friday 16 February, 11.30AM
New works from New Zealand and India reinterpreting modernism for a new time
Natalie Guy recently completed a three month residency in Varanasi, India and the results of this residency form her new exhibition, Then and Then Again.
Working with manufacturers she met in the city, Guy weaves some of the wonder of Varanasi into her distinctive sculpture practice.
Utilising a contrasting palette of hard material (iron formed into shapes by a local Varanasi blacksmith) and soft fibres (traditional muslin dyed and embroidered with designs inspired by Gordon Walters prints), this exhibition regenerates and brings together New Zealand modernism and Indian handcraft.
The residency Guy completed is based at Kriti Gallery and is supported by Asia New Zealand Foundation.
