Conversation Pieces: Collaborative Works

20 December 2002–19 January 2003

ARTISTS: Gavin Chilcott and Ian Wedde, Jo Randerson and Wayne Youle, Sam Kebbell and Richard Reddaway, Claire Martin and Luke Savage, Ngataiharuru Taepa and Saffronn Te Ratana, Raewyn Atkinson and Jenny Bornholdt and Catherine Griffiths, Chris Chitty and Grant Franklin and Elizabeth Thomson, Ken Double and Terry Urbahn and Patrick Velvin CURATOR Rebecca Wilson VENUE Michael Hirschfeld Gallery  

Nineteen participants—five duos and three trios—make eight collaborative works. Some participants have never met before; the invitation prompts new creative relationships. Work in Progress: The Growing Chambers (2002) is a collaboration between sculptor Elizabeth Thomson, scientific glass-blower Grant Franklin, and designer Chris Chitty. In Pitcher with Women (2002), Jenny Bornholdt’s poem expressed in Catherine Griffiths’s typography is combined with three Raewyn Atkinson ceramic vessels.
