We are delighted to launch Fiona Pardington's outstanding new series, Midnight at the Crossroads in collaboration with Starkwhite, with a unique event featuring special guests Mr & Mrs Haines.

Recognised as one of New Zealand's leading artists, and with over 30-years of professional practice, Fiona believes photography is the ultimate animistic portal; a crossroad where mundane and etheric meet in light and shadow.

Renowned musicians, Nathan and Jaimie Haines will dig deep into their extensive collection of vinyl rarities to present a DJ set of musical exotica in response to these extraordinary works.

Powerful, raw, and sublime ‘Vignette’ explores the relationships between technology and the human body; a theme Vicki has been exploring for the past year in her practise.

These three individual pieces have been painstakingly crafted to highlight the strength, and fragility, of her signature borosilicate glass.
