Wunderruma
A collection of contemporary New Zealand jewellery will be on display at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki from July 18 to November 1.

Upcoming exhibition Wunderruma: New Zealand Jewellery curated by two of the country’s most prominent jewellers Karl Fritsch and Warwick Freeman, features the works of more than 75 contemporary artists including Jane Dodd (pictured above), Bob Mitchell (pictured below) as well as Maori taonga (treasure) and Pacific and historical jewellery.

Objects made from stone, wood, bone and precious metals sit alongside less traditional works such as a necklace made from cigarette butts, a brooch made from a kingfisher bird and a sheepskin necklace.

Wunderruma originated when the curators were invited by Galerie Handwerk in Munich, Germany to create a show for the international jewellery symposium Schmuck in 2014.
