Natalie Tozer, Emma Smith, Kelly Pretty & Teresa Peters
Teresa Peters invites Natalie Tozer, Kelly Pretty invites Emma Smith. Themes found in this grouping have a discordant and dystopic bent to them. Natalie Tozer’s future fossils dug from a burnt earth, next to Emmas Smiths apocalyptic blackened skies. These works are bridged with Teresa Peters’ ceramic trail. There is a sense of another time, geological time, and alternative speculative futures as the works yearn across the space to connect to each other.
MOTHERMOTHER is an evolving exhibition situated at LOT23 Gallery, Auckland.The project weaves emerging and established female artists from all backgrounds as each exhibiting artist invites another to take their place. A story is created with each handling over of the space, bringing different artists together to foster connections within the wider art community.
