Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 23rd June–Sunday 19th August 2012
Fancy Fools Flight takes the utilitarian bottle form as its starting point and tops these with stoppers that feature a line up of guardian characters that are drawn from a rich visual memory bank, both real and imagined. As the artists describe: "the message is not in the bottle but it is the bottle itself ... our intention is to stir memory and re-contextualise the bottle to try and engage the viewer in new and unexpected ways."
Initiated, curated and toured nationally by the Sarjeant Gallery, Wanganui.
The exhibition is accompanied by a publication supported by Creative New Zealand who also provided the Crystal Chain Gang with a grant to produce new work for this exhibition.
