Di ffrench (1946 – 1999)
Over a period of some 20 years, ffrench made an idiosyncratic and long-lasting contribution to New Zealand art as a sculptor, performance artist, photographer, filmmaker, theorist and arts educator. Her practice was diverse yet interconnected by theme and a refusal to adhere to conventional solutions. (Anne Kirker, 2009)
From March – May 2009, the Dunedin Public Art Gallery presented an exhibition (Activating Ideas), a survey of collected works curated by Anne Kirker.
Artis Gallery is delighted to now have the opportunity to show a selection of these works in a selling exhibition in Auckland.
