IT’S IN THE BAG
A group show curated by Rawiri Brown as part of Artweek Auckland
7 - 14 October
The bag - An object which supersedes functional purpose towards more a personal, characterisation of it's owner. This object of desire both revealing and concealing has the ability to enhance, reflect or deceive. It communicates status, lifestyle and are signifiers of personal taste, heritage or political leanings. Whether that be expressed overtly through print, colour, branding or slogans or more subtle through design, fabric and fastenings. Such signifiers act as social cues of how we wish to present ourselves while defining how others interact with us.
