We are big fans of furniture and lighting designer extrodinaire Erik North, BIG fans. So we've been waiting with baited breath for a chance to head off to see his latest exhibition "Making Plans". Currently on show at Twentybythirty gallery - it makes excellent use of the tiny space built into the front of the Pushka Espresso Bar, which of course is located in yet another of melbourne's uber cool laneways, Presgrave Place. North's brilliantly crafted railway brings to life the highly industrious architecture of a miniature wooden nether-world: 3D urban planning that is part Gullivers travels, part Fraggle Rock, part ant farm.
Exhibition @ twentybythirty, Pushka
20 Presgrave Place, Melbourne
7 – 30 August, 24 hours
Eriks' show is part of Craft Victoria's A Month About Making, an initiative focusing on the how's and why's of contemporary craft production complete with professional members exhibition, workshops, artists in residence and free artist talks... well worth a look.
