Enjoy presents the first solo show of work by Auckland-based artist Florence Wild.

With a 'found' parachute, two paintings, an expanse of cassette tape innards and a hand-embroidered rug, Dove Tail Joint presents a collision between seemingly disparate objects, a variety of processes, and pop-cultural references.

Wild works across a range of media and disciplines, investigating the instances in which the real and the fictitious cross paths. Her practice locates her as somewhat of an intermediary; exposing the cyclic and often tenuous links among the pop-amalgam that weaves by way of reference through film, television, music and literature.

The concepts of gathering, connecting and 'linking multiple threads of interest, is reflected in the works themselves' through stitching, layering, knotting, repetition, and other physical processes.

Florence Wild has a BFA from Elam School of Fine Arts, and has recently exhibited at rm Gallery (then known as Rm 103), and in Gambia Castle's Magazine project. Join us for a joint artist talk and opening celebration Wednesday 29 July, from 5.15pm!
