The Ministry of Art and Design, otherwise known as MoAD, is a collaboration between Zekiah Heath and Aroha Lewin.
The two met while studying towards a Bachelor of Design at Unitec in Auckland and continue to carry out their own individual creative practices respectively. Zekiah is a ceramic artist while Aroha creates limited edition screenprints.
The other focus for MoAD is to create opportunities for artists and designers and emerging New Zealand Design
brands, by organising events which enable its members to network and engage with the wider community.
MoAD events are a vehicle for showcasing the incredible talents of local artists and designers that are exceptional at their craft. A strong emphasis is placed on quality rather than quantity and encouraging people to buy NZ made.
By the nature of the collection and the process the objects go through, each piece transforms into a one-off object, strong by itself or grouped with other like colours.
The combination of colour and form makes each piece in the collection entirely individual. “We wanted to bring these beautiful old objects into today’s world, breathe new life into them. By resurfacing the objects in bright colours it re-contextualises them, it makes them new again.
They are quite simply playful collectibles.” The range questions the line between art and functional objects, giving objects a life and language of their own.
