In the first of our Summer window exhibitions in our new K Rd space, KIRSTIN CARLIN and EMMA FITTS will work together to create an installation viewable for the month of January while the gallery is closed. Please note that dates are slightly flexible and may change without notice.
Carlin and Fitts have a long history of collaborating together with previous exhibitions including "74 Heaton St", Christchurch, 2014; "Shadow is Shade", The Physics Room, Christchurch, 2013; "Shade is Shadow", Window, University of Auckland, 2013. In 2015 their work was curated by Natasha Conland into the exhibition "Necessary Distraction: A Painting Show" at the Auckland Art Gallery. For this exhibition work by Emma Fitts was exhibited alongside paintings by Kirstin Carlin. Fitts responded to the work and created four works in the "Seasons" series that used Carlin's painted imagery screenprinted onto silk.
