Sister City is a group exhibition at Melbourne's Blindside Gallery curated by Jessie Borrell in collaboration with Enjoy Gallery, Wellington.

Together/apart: five Wellington artists explore displacement and location. With first-hand experience as a member of the Wellington diaspora, Jessie Borrell has transported her networks across the Tasman for this exhibition. Her selection of five female artists is symbolic of a period and location in her memory; with her endeavour resulting in a collaborative reclamation of time and remembrance, proffering the geography of her affiliations.

My Feejee Mermaid is a commissioned drawing by artist Brownwyn Holloway-Smith. Holloway-Smith was provided with a list of strategic limitations in order to undertake a drawing of a fake feejee mermaid fossil that artist Kim Paton used to visit as a child at the now closed North Brighton Zoo in Christchurch.
