After a busy and exciting period of travel and the staging of a series of highly successful art exhibitions and events overseas, Angela Meyer returned to New Zealand bringing with her an exhibition of work by four female artists from here and abroad. Hunt draws on several of the tenets of the Arte Povera style; displaying open-ended experimentation towards materials and processes and scepticism towards overly intellectualised concepts, completed with a light, delicate and human touch.
Visitors to the gallery were greeted with the sound of dogs barking in a work by Gabrielle McDonnell, viewed the photography of 'new topographer' Karen Adams, were immersed in an installation incorporating the seemingly mundane product of A4 computer paper, transformed by Sonia Bruce into something spectacular and were dazzled as Angela Meyer puts 20,000 drawing pins to imaginative uses.
Playing with the fun and the ephemeral, Hunt was an elegant and seductive experience.
