This is a collaborative project by Claudia Dunes and Tanya Martusheff. We're practicing artists residing in Auckland and we're seeking funds to cover artwork production/installation and opening night costs for our upcoming show at Pearce Gallery in Parnell.

Our exhibition is an inquiry into mobility and shifting boundaries. The exhibition will consist of new works from both artists ranging from a field of burnt sugar stalagmites and Wardian cages made of Perspex.

The funds raised from this campaign will be used towards materials and installation costs. Part of the funds will go towards food and refreshments that will be on offer when the exhibition opens to the public on 17 September, 5pm. We hope to see you there!

We would like to thank all the patrons who fund visual artists. Your support helps realise these projects. We'd also like to thank you for your interest in ours.

    Thanks to all the lovley people who've donated to the project! 

    Just an update on the opening night for the exhibition: the opening night starts from 6pm and not at 5pm. Sorry for the confusion!
