Capture, Suite’s first exhibition for spring, features works by bronze sculptor Jonathan Campbell and photographer and Arts Foundation of New Zealand icon Ans Westra.

Capture is Campbell’s first exhibition at Suite. He will exhibit amalgams of power plugs, birds’ skulls, leaves and cords made using the lost-wax bronze casting process that he is a specialist in.

Campbell’s Bronzerrotype works are a sculptural interpretation of the Daguerrotype photographic process. Daguerrotypes - photographic images printed on silver-plated copper sheets - were commonly used in the 19th Century to record portraits. Symbolism within Campbell’s work reflects elemental relationships between origins, family trees, personality and character.

Ans Westra’s ability to capture the spirit of our country has cemented her position as one of New Zealand’s celebrated photographers. She is responsible for the most comprehensive photo documentation of the lives and cultures of New Zealanders during 50 plus years of cultural, social and generational change.

Washday at the Pa, which created some controversy when it was first published in 1964, has ensured Westra’s work sits directly at the centre of debates around Pakeha representation of Māori.

Capture is Suite’s third exhibition of Westra’s works and includes vintage prints of well-known images from Handbook, Washday at the Pa and Witness to Change.
