Bodies of Knowledge 2020 // 21

For the Bodies of Knowledge project, Fiona investigates the role of objects in our everyday lives. She discusses both the existing narratives and relationships we form surrounding these objects.

“All of my art works contain elements of found objects that are re-designed and re-purposed into items that are beautiful and functional.” - Fiona Frew

The term found object comes from the French translation objet trouvé where art is created from undisguised, but often modified, items or products that are not normally considered materials from which art is made, often because they already have a non-art function.

Zero waste for our precious planet.

Fiona's studio is based in a small rural town on the Southern Island of New Zealand, Aotearoa. Surrounded by stunning native landscape - it’s only fitting that her practice aims to create as little waste as possible while following environmentally and ethically based approaches during the production of her one-of-a-kind jewellery and art.
