How often do we think about the actual tool or tools that the artist/maker has used to construct their work?

Tools of The Trade is a collaborative project were participating creatives have been invited to present their tools in a physical and or digital form to allow each of us the chance to engage in the process of forming a new network of understandings and relationships about the artists working process.

Starting with creatives who have links to New Zealand with the view to expanding beyond, artist and curator Justin Jade Morgan seeks to address the disparity between artworks and the tools that create them by elevating selected working tools from a creative’s studio, an archive or even a galleries inventory into an exhibitive context.

“Throughout this exhibition we are offered the chance to look at the building of a collaborative studio archive, whilst together engaging in the process of bringing each of these tools to life. Physical objects such as glitter, paper, a knife, bits of paint, an eye mask, toothpaste, soap, a computer, a cutting matt, perfume and so on begin to form a complete set of tools, thus forming a physical and visual look at a New Zealand and or global studio today” - Justin Jade Morgan, December 2013
