There’s more to a briefcase…

A BRIEFCASE is a quintessential piece of corporate imagery, so what could be more ironic than to use one as a blank canvas for emerging artists.

The Briefcase Project, currently exhibiting at Thistle Hall Gallery on Cuba St, is doing just that, with a collaborative exhibition showcasing 18 up-and-coming Wellington artists.

Stolen Land (NZ Parliament) by Dick Whyte.

The artists are limited only by the spatial limitation of one briefcase and their creative potential.

Installations featured paint, patu, land stolen from NZ Parliament grounds, modelling clay, diorama, tattoo art, illustration, sound, video and a pair of underpants.

Artist Gunter Miller featured in the exhibition with an old briefcase which he painted.

He usually works with canvases or on the street with paint and graffiti and enjoyed the challenge of working with a different medium.

He described the exhibition as “f-ing amazing” going on to say it was “amazing what people made inside the briefcases”.

It was the first time Gunter has publicly exhibited his work and he hopes to hold a solo exhibition at the end of the year.

The exhibition, curated by Rich Decibels be on until Sunday 14 August.
