Doing it for the girls is Sarah Foster-Sproull with her striking new work ORCHIDS. Born from a fascination with the mythology that surrounds the orchid flower, ORCHIDS contemplates the conflict of females at different stages of their lives, unveiling the significance of intergenerational relationships.

ORCHIDS connects some of New Zealand's most intriguing artists and designers who have come together to create compelling imagery, which is complemented by Eden Mulholland's evocative score.

Together, they reveal an entrancing metaphysical realm that conjures characters of the occult and uncovers the complex female spirit: Women as mothers, witches, sirens and lovers; beasts, deities and otherworldly creatures.

Find out the secrets of feminine magic, exclusive languages, intuitions and lost ritualistic practices as ORCHIDS brings the unknown out of the darkness to serve the 'light'.
