An exhibition Inspired by apothecary, alchemy and high street perfumeries the Jelly Archive tells the nostalgic story of one of New Zealand’s favourite desserts through an interactive and theatrical exhibition. The exhibition is the creation of Jellyologist - Jessica Mentis. Jessica set up Mentis Studios at the beginning of 2015 in order to fuse her two passions, architecture and food. She aims to approach food and flavour-based experiences from an architectural standpoint, using technology and processes usually used to design objects and buildings. She doesn't set a table, she builds a set.

As part of the exhibition Jessica is offering “Mad Labs” – where apothecary meets high street perfumery. This is a ticketed event where participants make their own mould and concoct their own special jelly flavour to take home and create their own masterpiece!
