A Question of Identity

By Grace Lai


New Zealand jeweller Johanna Zellmer's practice focuses on national identity and the varying bureaucracy that can divide us. In this essay, Curator Grace Lai looks specifically at Zellmer's recent three-month residency in Gothenburg, Sweden, and her exhibition of crafted and altered coins which acted as a vehicle to comment on the current political climate.

By Kim Paton


Munich Jewellery Week is one of the oldest and most prestigious contemporary jewellery exhibitions in the world; this year, Renee Pearson became the first New Zealander to win the Talente Prize at the fair. Objectspace's Director Kim Paton walks us through the exhibition and explores Pearson's win within the landscape of funding cuts and dwindling education opportunities for makers in New Zealand.
