Based on a major interactive artwork Sara Hughes conceived for the Dunedin Public Art Gallery in 2019, the work was reimagined for the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki in 2020. Inspired by these public installations, All My Favourite Shapes - The Mini Set, allows for open ended play, and endless imagination and creativity for all ages to enjoy in their own homes.
The Mini Set includes; a flexible black board (1000 x 600mm) with self-adhesive backing allowing easy installation onto most walls, 240 small magnetic shapes in a range of 15 colours packed in a wooden box, made from NZ pine, and a limited edition poster by the artist.
Hughes comments; “I created the first Mini Set of All My Favourite Shapes for my sons sixth birthday using the offcuts left over from hand cutting the magnetic shapes for the initial iteration of the work at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery in 2019. During lockdown I thought a lot about the role of art and developed this set with the intention of bringing creativity for all ages into the home. It was important to me that this artist edition was made in New Zealand; the magnetic shapes are screen printed to match my specific colours, the wooden box, tube and printing has all be created in New Zealand and I am currently employing a group of young artists in the studio to help make All My Favourite Shapes - The Mini Set".
