Join Ōtepoti Dunedin-based jeweller Jane Dodd in conversation with Dowse Director Karl Chitham as they explore Wild Domain: The Natural History of Jane Dodd Jewellery; an exhibition which delves into her examination of humankind’s impact on the natural world. Representing the first major survey of Jane Dodd’s expanding family of works, Wild Domain, covers nearly 30 years of Dodd’s jewellery practice and includes pieces from many of her most well known and loved exhibitions and bodies of work.

‘Over her thirty-year career Jane Dodd has amassed an impressive catalogue of works. To the casual observer they may, at times, seem disparate but to the aficionado or ‘doddologist’ they represent a series of interlinked threads that weave and entwine to form their own unique, symbiotic ecosystem of stories, characters and geographies.’ – Karl Chitham

Then join us to celebrate the launch of Wild Domain: The Natural History of Jane Dodd Jewellery, a brand new publication from The Dowse Art Museum. Featuring beautifully articulated responses to Jane’s practice from contributors Dr. Chelsea Nichols, Bronwyn Lloyd and Justine Olsen, as well as images from Haru Sameshima, long-time photographer of Jane’s jewellery. This publication is made possible through the generous support of Creative New Zealand.

Wild Domain: The Natural History of Jane Dodd Jewellery is part of The Dowse Art Museum’s 50th Anniversary programme. It continues our commitment to highlighting contemporary Aotearoa jewellery practice that was explored in projects such as the New Zealand Jewellery Biennale (1994, 1996, 1998, 2001), Made in Aotearoa: Jewellery by Alan Preston (2007), Wunderrūma: New Zealand Jewellery (2014) and The Language of Things: Meaning and Value in Contemporary Jewellery (2018).
