"Open Home" Contemporary Jewellery Exhibition was part of Radiant Pavilion.

A Contemporary Jewellery Event for wearing Contemporary Jewellery.

This is no longer able to be viewed but can be arranged via email. Please email info@fionafrew.com.

Open Home 2021 event is a part of my Master of Fine Arts project. I am currently a candidate for my MFA at the Dunedin School of Art, Otago Polytechnic specialising in the fine art discipline of Contemporary Jewellery.

My MFA project explores the role of objects in everyday life in both personal and public spheres. Thus, Open Home 2021, was an event designed to encourage people to wear my jewellery pieces that were set up in my personal home.

I believe that Contemporary Jewellery can be a powerful force for opening discussion on the way we live with objects and how this might change for more positive impacts in our personal environs and the current climatic and environmental epoch.

More Thoughts by Fiona

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.
