UNPACKED 6 – 25 April 2017
Toni Mosley gives an insight into how our ‘baggage’ gets a bad wrap, and why it shouldn’t.
‘Unpacked’ is the new show Toni Mosley is exhibiting in April based on our unpacked luggage. “Baggage is often considered a very negative term and we forget the good things that are part of our history we carry with us. I have been working with this theme in my work for the last several years using titles as a pun explanation such as ‘knowledge in baggage’. My newest series is about the conversations I have with my audience. ‘Unpacked’ is not only my unpacking but also that of my last audience that came to my show. I had a contest to win a print if they told me what their baggage was. Now some of those are becoming the work for this exhibition. I love the idea that the audience informs the work so it becomes all of our baggage for better or worse.”
Her exhibition runs 6 – 25 April 2017. Come along to the Railway Street Studios in Auckland, New Zealand and contribute to the next conversation and painting series she will have with you.
