Members Club

2019. A site specific installation for The Booth at Gus Fisher Gallery - a heritage space constructed to house the building’s telephone booth in 1935. The work borrows its title from the nearby Northern Club, an exclusive members club built on the site of the first section sold at Auckland’s inaugural controlled land sale in 1841. Exhibited as part of Gus Fisher Gallery’s re-opening exhibition 'We’re Not Too Big to Care', Members Club borrows from the upholstery style of the Chesterfield to consider forms of exclusion. 

Elke Finkenauer is a visual artist of New Zealand/German descent, living and working in Glasgow, United Kingdom and Auckland, New Zealand.
