Manon van Kouswijk’s work is on display until 12 March at Te Uru Gallery in Auckland, in an exhibition curated by James Anderson.

The Ornamental Residue pieces are a series of works made in 2014, which originate from a study into the typology of brooches. For this series, Manon van Kouswijk applies a range of processes and abstractions to iconic brooch forms and motifs from the history of jewellery.
