Picking a fight: Crossing the line of constructive criticism into the dodgy space of outright idea pilfering
Wed, 18 Apr 12 - Wed, 20 Jun 12
Masterworks Gallery Ponsonby
This exhibition offers a rare glimpse into the creative practice and shared critique of contemporary jewellers and couple Frances Stachl and Craig McIntosh.
Working and exhibiting independently from one another for many years, Frances and Craig rarely discuss each others work in depth; and prefer not to listen to criticism from one another. "It is somehow too personal," they explain. However "we both appreciate what the other does and for this work we have chosen aspects, ideas and materials of each others work to remake as our own...This show is about changing this is a little, and having a sly dialogue about the nature of each others work as we see it.""
Both Frances and Craig studied at Whitireia Polytechnic.
Preview Wednesday 18 April from 5.30pm
