An exhibition of new sculptural interventions by Bena Jackson and Teresa Collins
Event type: 
Art, Craft, Exhibition
Toi Poneke Gallery
61 Abel Smith Street Te Aro Wellington


With materials collected largely from recycled and second-hand sources, Teresa Collins and Bena Jackson introduce additions and alterations to Toi Pōneke's gallery space.

Initially founded upon an iPhone archive of everyday observations, the artists have designed furniture and sculptural interventions which reference found objects and situations, reflecting some of the opportune and ingenious ways in which urban environments exist around us.

Storm water Solutions recalls DIY construction methods, while also employing rudimentary, sometimes delicate, self-taught crafts. Through the repurposing and reassembling of objects and materials, new potentials in design and function are brought to light. The exhibition weaves amusement and sentimentality into material narratives.


Public Events:
Weather Dependant - A springtime art walk
Saturday 5 October 10 - 11am

A workshop in the gallery with the artists.
Saturday 12 October 1 - 3pm
