A key installation in the show, Gesamtkunsthandwerk is the result of a three month long collaborative project between NZ sculptor Francis Upritchard, Italian furniture designer Martino Gamper, and NZ based German jeweller Karl Fritsch. Not to be missed, Gesamtkunsthandwerk will also be shown atHamish McKay Gallery, Wellington, in mid-June.
