What is this all about?

In 2010, Seven Auckland Jewellery Geeks embarked on a mission to get their work out there and seen by Subliminally Infiltrating other people's openings with the work of that evening's Feature Geek.
In 2011, a few more geeks join in the fun and break a few of the original Subliminal Infiltration rules...

Subliminally Infiltrating International - an ongoing project by Chris and Al on their Big Arty Europe trip

Last year's Broach of the Month Club wearer Chris and her husband Al are on a big art trip around Europe including a bit of time at the Venice Biennale.  They kindly offered to do some Subliminal Infiltrating along the way.

The Hong Kong Art Fair - Chris wearing Raewyn Walsh

Al and Chris with Michael Parekowhai's guard at the Palazzo where the NZ exhibition is in Venice.

 Sharon's Wind Wand, Al and the Bull

 My VW mechanic Frank (who is also Michael Parekowhai's mechanic) told me this morning that he saw the beautifully carved grand piano that was black at the leaving NZ party being painstakingly sanded down to be painted Red before it left for Venice. Frank was sworn to secrecy because Mike P (as Frank calls him) wanted it to be a surprise for people seeing the show in Auckland and in Venice.  Super.
You can see more of Mike P here. 

Clockwise from top right: Cath Dearsley Bunny Poo necklace, Kristin D'Agostino Aligator Goo pin, Sharon Fitness Wind Wand and Nadene Carr green link on black white and grey necklace (sorry Kristin and Nadene what do you call these?) all adorning a Michael Parekowhai Venice Biennale 2011 Bag.

The same naughty jewelleries now adorning a 'Free Ai Weiwei' bag given out at the Vernissage opening at the Giardini Venice.

Peter Deckers Infiltrates The See Here Infiltrating Masterworks 08 June 2011

Oh what a night!  The Geeks decided to Subliminally Infiltrate The See Here Masterworks show with some Peter Deckers and a Sunni to celebrate the visiting Wellington jewellery geek community which ended up being a Bootcamp reunion, Handshake jeweller meeting and BOM retrospective spectacular.

The See Here not so Subliminally Infiltrating the Masterworks Gallery window.

 Lynsay and Kristin investigate Vivien Atkinsons installation.

 The lovely Sunni Gibson wearing a Peter Deckers
 Bootcampers Karen Michaud and Tara Brady enjoying a catch-up.
 Not to be beaten, Tara grabs a Peter Deckers to Subliminally Infiltrate with too.
 By happy coincidence, Lynsay was in the Rick Rudd teapot show when I walked through and I remembered that our very first planned Subliminal Infiltration was at the yellow Rick Rudd show. Special!
 Mary Curtis arrived in her pilates gear so I adorned her with Vivien Atkinson.  Shelley Norton wears an Esther Knobel that looks a bit like a Sunni.
 Renee wearing Sunni, Sunni wearing Renee next to Sarah Reads work and Shelley now wearing Vivien
Nadine Smith wearing Nadine Smith
 Renee and Sharon in Thinker pose contemplating Tara Brady expiration dates
 Nadene arrives late and doesnt have a Peter, so Sharon puts hers on Nadene
 Sunni Gibson, Eloise Kitson and Sarah Read all wearing Peter Deckers
 Renee wearing Nadine Smith, Raewyn wearing Peter and Nadene wearing a scarf
 I bet David Hartnell thought I was trying to take a photo of him, but I was actually trying to get a photo of the elusive Cheryl Sills with her Jewellery Box showcase.
 Cheryl's work looked great on fluro perspex shelf
The See Here installation was fantastic and we were all very impressed.  Most clever award goes to Peter Deckers himself for this fantastic bunch of wonderfulness.

Many thanks to Masterworks Gallery for loaning us a couple of extra Peters to infiltrate with.
