'..... Immortally Yours'


{Suite} Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Fiona Pardington, “ ... Immortally Yours.” The exhibition features six works made recently while Fiona was in Paris completing a Laureate Artistic Creations Project with the Musee du Quai Branly.

“I bought the flowers at the Porte de Clingancourt flea market in Paris and photographed them where I was staying in Rue des Levis, Villiers, Paris, in May this year.

The flowers were remnants from an estate of a milliner who had died at an advanced age. They were in a plastic bag, squashed under a whole lot of old books and ephemera up one of the side streets at the markets. I had been researching a museum collection in Paris of haute couture hand made flowers. When I got to Paris I was unable to access the collection because the museum was being moved out of the city. I went looking at Porte de Clingancourt for the most part of a day as I had a feeling I could find something. At the last moment before I left found them. I steamed and shaped them over a pot of boiling water and photographed them on a table in the lounge room.”

Fiona Pardington is New Zealand's premier contemporary photographer. She graduated from the University of Auckland, New Zealand with an MFA (First Class Honours) in photography. She has participated in many exhibitions at major institutions, including Christchurch Art Gallery (2009) and Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (2006). Born in Devonport, New Zealand and of Kai Tahu, Kati Mamoe and Scottish descent, Fiona now lives and works in Waiheke Island, New Zealand.
