Handshake3: reflect   The Dowse Art Museum, Lower Hutt this exhibition includes a specific brief and focus on new work.

handshake 3: reflect

The provocation

The Dowse invited HS3 to contemplate given texts to help present their exhibition with a strong conceptual and critical grounding, revolving around the verb reflect.

Paradoxically, reflect can mean both to mimic and to cast back or respond, a useful metaphor when considering the collaborative mantra that has sat alongside the Handshake journey thus far.  For The Dowse exhibition, HS3 artists draw on connections between the term reflect and the self-reflexive nature of contemporary jewellery, which both embraces and counteracts with its traditional and commercial counterparts.
