The Knitted Assassin is a collection of artworks by Jud Wimhurst based on the idea of identity and self-expression through fashion and the idea that fashion is for everyone – in this case, a fictitious collection created for assassins. Featured works include knitted balaclavas in different 'outrageous and surreal' designs with a matching knitted handgun. Worth seeing for the title alone.

An interesting proposition combining multimedia and jewellery sees Sydney based artist Melinda Young
making threadworks inspired by and as a compliment to a series of video installations by Dutch artist Fiona Tan. Each neckpiece follows on from an earlier body of work last seen at Craft Victoria entitiled Take a ball of thread' (which by the way was excellent for those that missed it) The works hav been made from hand spun sewing thread as a response to the interior and exterior landscapes of the body, and following the visual and symbolic cues from Tans photographic images.
Threadworks at Pablo Fanque
March 19 to June 12, 2010
Fiona Tan's video installations are screening in the following two venues:
Sherman Contemporary ArtFoundation
