Handshake 2
Contemporary Jewellery

4th April – 21st April 2018

Super positions in NZ contemporary jewellery; a handshake to the 21st Sydney Biennale.

In this NZ contemporary jewellery exhibition the Sydney audience can discover how each art practice reacts, answers, or is in dialogue with the title of the 2018 Sydney Biennale ‘SUPERPOSITION: Art of Equilibrium and Engagement’. Current and past HANDSHAKE artists were asked to connect and/or respond with their art practice on the focus of the 2018 Sydney Biennale.

“The ability to put objects on our body makes us different to the next person. It is the thing that makes us human, it is the thing that has connected all civilisations since Superposition waves began when one cave woman found a thing with a hole in it, stuck her finger in it and called it a ring”. (Sharon Fitness)

HANDSHAKE is all about experimentation and pushing boundaries.
