Exquisitely imagined, startlingly strange works by an internationally acclaimed New Zealand artist.
Francis Upritchard’s works are animated by mystery. Exquisitely imagined and startlingly strange, her sculptures and paintings reverberate with possible histories, both ancient and imagined. Come face-to-face with enigmatic figures, sprawling sloths and cabinets full of the unexpected in an unforgettable survey of this internationally acclaimed, New Zealand-born artist’s work. Jealous Saboteurs spans twenty years of practice and features important loans from public and private collections in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States. It is presented as an exhibition partnership between City Gallery Wellington and Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne and supported by City Gallery Wellington Foundation.
