I have a sneaky feeling Auckland jewellery is taking an interesting turn. This blog: subliminal infiltration catalogs the adventures of guerrilla jewellery in a guerrilla world.
Here is how the subliminal infiltrations work as per the blog:
A brief and unconcise history:
By happy coincidence, 3 auckland jewellery Geeks (yes we are trying to think of a better name) wore Cath Dearsley felty brooches to the Fingers Contemporary Jewellery exhibition opening on 04 August 2010 featuring new graduate work by Nadene Carr (MSVA), Kristin Toller (Unitec) and Debbie Adamson (Otago Polytechnic).
Now, the Geeks have been planning to do some guerilla actions at openings for a while but hadnt yet found a suitable behaivour to get ourselves out there and noticed without looking like complete fools.
Being smart and perceptive like we are, we quickly realised the potential of this 3 Cath Dearsley accidental happening and set about creating a cunning plan to subliminally infiltrate the Auckland Contemporary Jewellery and Art scene in the four months leading up to our pencilled in THINKspace show at Masterworks Gallery opening on 04 December 2010.
The plan: keep it simple, showcase one Geek’s work at each opening leading up to the THINKspace, taking photo documentation and keeping notes on comments and feelings as we go along.
The Geeks are: Kristin D’Agostino, Raewyn Walsh, Cath Dearsley, Nadene Carr, Lynsay Raine, Gillian Deery and Sharon Fitness.
