Proof of Concept: Artist Talk
November 5 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Come join us for an insightful and curious artist talk with Handshake 8 makers led in conversation by Handshake Alumni Mandy Flood.
This panel will be a discussion with seven different makers from the Handshake 8 project coming together in collaboration. We will hear from artists, Denise Callan, Fiona Frew, Fran Carter, Grace Yu Piper, Rachael Chapman, Rose Pickernell and Tūī Diprose. Visit our exhibition page for more info on the exhibiting artists.
United by material play and conceptual insights, this will provide an incredible opportunity to talk to each of their innovative practices, while getting insight into their explorations and processes that they have undertaken throughout the half-way point of their two-year journey with Handshake 8.
Light refreshments will be available.
About Mandy Flood
Auckland based maker Mandy Flood takes everyday observations and lets them permeate her process led material explorations. She spends time with common place materials allowing both the nature of the material, and the makers mark to be evident in the final outcome. Flood believes that time spent with an object enhances the outcome, that it is the quality of time not necessarily the amount of time that is vital. Presently, she is navigating the loss of her studio due to weather events. This time is valuable and one to be embraced!
