With artists Anne-Sophie Adelys, Anton Parsons, Andrew Hall, Bernie Harfleet, Chiara Corbelletto, David McCracken, Donna Sarten, Elliot Collins, Evan Woodruffe, Flox, Gabby O’Connor, Giles Smith, Jeff Thomson, Jermaine Reihana, John Edgar, Judy Darragh, Katie Smith, Kathryn Tsui, Kairava Gullatz, Kevin Osmond, Mandy Patmore, Martin Selman, Nate Savill, Pacifica Mamas, Peter Lange, Peata Larkin, Ruth Woodbury, Stephen Woodward and Tony Brown.

My role at Corban Estate was often about making art more accessible and for the exhibition I selected this graph paper collage. ‘hourglass’ (2017) reflects my interest in the inclusive status that collage and quilt making can share, they are both generally made with everyday materials and methods. The frame itself is based on the contrast found patchwork patterns
