Invitation to Openness—Substantive and Transitive States, by Wellington sculptor Elizabeth Thomson is an ambitious installation of hundreds of flocked bronze white moths.
Invading the gallery space, the moths will create an immersive environment, landing on the walls of their own accord without the restriction of order as if it is their natural habitat.
Listen to this The Dowse podcast on SoundCloud, where Elizabeth Thompson, artist behind the exhibition Invitation to Openness—Substantive and Transitive States talks about where her work with moths began and how the exhibition evolved throughout the process.
Developed and toured by The Dowse Art Museum with the support of Creative New Zealand
