Additions + Alterations
15 February 2020 - 28 June 2020
Additions + Alterations presents a new installation by Wellington-based artist Emily Hartley-Skudder, alongside a selection of works from the Dunedin Public Art Gallery’s contemporary collection. Using the notion of re-framing or re-positioning as a thematic tool, these collection works sit within a gallery environment that has been changed through Hartley-Skudder’s work. Through her series of interventions, the gallery space is subtly altered, subverting its typical aesthetic. Placed together with works by other contemporary artists including Fiona Connor, Kawita Vatanajyankur, Nick Austin and Kushana Bush, Additions + Alterations explores the impacts of context, reproduction, materiality and function within contemporary practice.
