Stephen Mulqueen is a jeweler and sculptor who resides in Dunedin, Otago, Aotearoa/New Zealand. In the early 1980s, he was a founding partner of Fluxus Workshop and Gallery with Kobi Bosshard in Dunedin before shifting his workshop practice and research toward concepts of site and landscape. His practice began to activate the concept of “artist-as-archaeologist” at the intersections of memory and place. His most recent well-known works include KURI-DOG (2008), for the city of Dunedin, and a private commission on Waiheke Island (2009). He is currently the William Hodges Fellow at the Southern Institute of Technology in Invercargill, Southland.
