up to scale
Tonight there are a bunch of new shows opening at Craft Victoria. Really good ones, and as taken as I am by Timothy McLeod's beautiful hand crafted wheelbarrows (they are soooo beautiful) It's this show by installation artists and jewellers Bridie Lunney and Meredith Turnbull that has really got me excited. Both artists work at a variety of scales.The extrapolation of ideas through size, material and technique leads to dynamic outcomes that confound, delight and surprise. I've been transfixed while watching the installation, this one is a corker. In this exhibition they combine exhibition design, conceptual and practical display and wearable objects, presenting two parallel trajectories that use the impact of scale to create a landscape, while investigating the possible intersections between wearable and sculptural practices. Neato.
