On this work:

Mycelia:Mycelium is an examination of the relationship humans have with fungi, and with each other; a response to the scale of the current housing crisis, where people are forced to compete to rent damp, mouldy, unhealthy homes, and the most vulnerable people in our communities; children, elderly and those on lower incomes suffer the consequences.

This is the first time Mycelia:Mycelium has been shown publicly, and the first project that Angela has undertaken since moving to Whangarei in 2016.

With a diverse practice, connecting installation, theatre, performance and stitch, Angela graduated with a BFA from Whitecliffe College in 2005. She continues to expand her practice while studying biological organisms and social issues, she has a special interest in pursuing sustainable solutions for fashion design and working with young people.

Angela will be presenting an artist talk and facilitating a workshop for children at the gallery.
