‘If there are gehaakte gordijntjes in the window, you’ll know Dutchies live there’ – phrase heard as a child by artist Elisabeth Vullings, source unknown.

Gehaakte Gordijntjes – Crocheted Curtains examines how the 21 houses artist Elisabeth grew up in shaped her understanding of 'home' and her identity as a Dutch New Zealander. Using architectural constructs based on fragments of memory, experience, and migration; the gallery transforms into an abstract house, inviting contemplation of the sense of home we all carry within.

Elisabeth Vullings is an established Kāpiti artist. She is self-taught and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Architecture and a Master’s degree in Fine Arts. Through her studio practice, she explores architectural themes that draw on historical narratives. Elisabeth has been regularly shortlisted for art awards and achieved a Highly Commended in the Parkin Drawing Prize, 2020 - her entry piece, 1:1 Door is exhibited as part of the upcoming exhibition.

Gehaakte Gordijntjes – Crocheted Curtains open from 11 November at Toi Pōneke Gallery, 61 Abel Smith Street.
