Collective Practise is a group of artists based in Whangarei. Their work spans a diversity of media including paper, ceramics, textile, printmaking, sculpture, installation and performance. The members of Collective Practise meet regularly to share studio research, projects and reading, as well as talk through ideas central to their mahi toi. Initially coming together under a mentoring program offered in 2021 by Angela Rowe, they have continued to meet and support each others’ art making and work together to create Cut with the Kitchen Knife. This group exhibition discusses their experience of contemporary social issues such as modern motherhood, relationships to place, each other, and materials in their art practice.
