Window Walk | Lucy Foster X Cathedral Cabinet

Window Walk | Lucy Foster X Cathedral Cabinet

Image: Lucy Foster

Image: Lucy Foster

Lucy Foster is an artist working with Assemblage, Photography and Installation. Central to her work are themes of loss and revival through the embodiment of material possessions. In ‘getting rid of left by turning right,’ Lucy makes an inquiry into the desire of identifying oneself with the objects they keep. 

In the vitrine of Cathedral Cabinet, an installation forms relationships between personal and discarded objects, of which Lucy has experienced both directly and indirectly. A play on concealing and revealing calls fourth awareness to distant memories and re-told pasts; punctured music plays without sound, cycles of life and death perform behind a soft curtain. Each impression reserves a place in the audiences mind, however fleeting or considered these objects are ephemeral and bare no significance to true identity. 

Lucy has recently completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours at the Victorian College of the Arts, and has exhibited both Nationally and Internationally.

Window Walk | Tracy Muirhead X Dirty Dozen

Image: Tracy Muirhead

Born in South Africa, Tracy now lives in the leafy, outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne. She is passionate about clay, but tries to manipulate it as little as possible, allowing it to find its own expression. Hand building allows her to explore and experiment with endless possibilities when clay is stretched and torn, or squished and pierced. Many of her pieces are the result of this playful process of discovery.

In the vitrines of the Campbell Arcade’s Dirty Dozen, Tracy will present a landscape of pots in Black matt and Black shiny glazes.

Window Walk | Clare Scanlan X Campbell Arcade

Image: Clare Scanlan

An installation exploring colours within Melbourne’s historic Campbell Arcade:

Clare Scanlan (Scanlan & Makers): “There’s an alchemy that occurs when the perfect colour in the perfect finish catches the perfect light. Instead of just looking good, suddenly the space feels different. It's part science, part art, and part magic; born of years of training and practice in the arts of painting and architectural colour creation.”

“I would love to work with a space that has some historic or architectural interest, and reimagine all that history as visible to the current viewer. 

I would create a worn/aged paint effect by applying layers of textured and aged paint to the walls (and/or Interior Design objects such as room dividers or false walls depending on the scope of the specific site). I imagine using the 'lost trades' techniques and natural paint finishes I have obtained through my years working with handmade house-paints at Porter's Paints, but applying these incredibly traditional techniques & paints in beautiful, vivid, modern colour- customised in response to the specific space, the Melbourne locale and using Australian colours and products."

I would love to explore the power of colour and texture to create a space that is beautiful, tactile and colourful but also evokes emotion, a sense of passing time. I see this work as being unique to the space itself, and completely customised to suit: colour, finish, installation would all be site specific.”

Britt Neech and Hannah Culshaw have created a collaborative work which explores the notion of symbiosis and how this relates to human relationships. The different types of symbiosis are:

• Commensalism - where one organism benefits and the other is neither harmed nor helped.

• Mutualism - where both organisms benefit. An obligate mutualist cannot survive without its partner; a facultative mutualist can survive on its own.

• Parasitism - one organism (the parasite) benefits and the other (the host) is harmed.

Ceramic pieces are hand built and glazed using Britt’s own recipe; each form and surface emerging subtly unique. Hannah uses the individual ceramic objects to directly mould a corresponding wax form which she then casts into silver. The dialogue between the two distinct materials invites the viewer to consider relationships they have in their own lives.

Over the last few years I have been working on a project called Apomogy which has involved collecting the anonymous apologies of strangers from across the world, and attaching their confessions to pom poms. 

In 2019, I am now expanding the Apomogy project to include large scale, conceptual, hand made pom poms which (absent of apology notes) simply strives to symbolise the enormous scale of unspoken apologies and regret that exists in the world.

The large pom poms also strive to visually represent and capture the physical weight and look of an apology - with some taking on monstrous appearances and others being more inviting in nature.

My concept for this installation would involve an installation of these large scale pom poms. Some of the smaller, noted pom poms could also be included for context, however the focus would be on the larger scale pom poms.

Vessels with a common theme of spikes and jagged edges. All will have the ability to hold a flower/flowers or foliage but, not all will be displayed with flowers or foliage. The installation will be cylinders and donut shaped vessels thrown on the wheel then, hand built spikes and jaggers added. Also, some vessels will be altered by hand. The vessels will be modern, bold and have a presence about them. They will be glazed in a matte finish of various different colors. My thoughts are a combination of Burnt Orange, Aubergine and Dark Chocolate.

Spatial Layering: Australian Tapestry Workshop 

Space is built by overlapping several bi-dimensional planes: thin, light and transparent planes. 

In this case, the transparency of each layer dissolving into each other, losing the sense of perspective and 3-dimensional character. The shapes, therefore, become the space in between.

How do we see things? What do we focus on?

The layers of warp on various looms, the apron cloths, the frames of the looms, the architecture elements of the space, the essential tools and equipment required for weaving but they recedes into the background once the weaving begins.

The Japanese concept of ‘miegakure’: a spatial composition where it is not possible to see all the parts at the same time; to glimpse something that is hidden.

This piece shows where my eyes were focused at the Australian Tapestry workshop.

Amanda Ho is a Melbourne-based weaver, who draws on her experience as an architect as well as her Chinese heritage.

In 2015, she turned her focus from architecture to weaving. Her designs demonstrate how the use of materials, patterns and structures continues to influence in her work.

Window Walk | Jordan Wood X Dirty Dozen

Image: Jordan Wood

Image: Jordan Wood

Jordan Wood is a Melbourne based artist working across installation, sculpture, ceramics and collage to explore propositional future landscapes/ experiences/ relics. The space between construction and deconstruction or growth and decay, and their interdependence on one another provides a beginning for material investigations.

The installation consists of between 10 – 20 ceramic masks, each finished with layers of different glazes and surface treatments. They vary in how many features or even faces are contained within the mask. Some have multiple eyes, others many noses or could be missing features entirely. They are approximately human scale but unable to be worn. They are mounted on makeshift stands made from old chemistry retort stands and other recycled materials, as if in a private, somewhat improvised museum. 

The mask is repeatedly found in various guises throughout numerous histories. They are intimate yet often easily discarded. They can take on the role of protection, both physically and psychologically. The mask is performative. Performance can be a method of protecting ones’ vulnerability through the acquisition of another self. By being installed in a shop window, the mask is reflected onto the passer by, engaging them in the complex narrative of the mask as object.

Third Object is an intergenerational collaboration between father and daughter duo Evangelos Sakaris and Michelle Sakaris. As Third Object they work in a variety of media including textiles, wood, clay and works on paper. They also work separately as independent artists across painting, sculpture, installation, performance and video. 

The installation is a series of embroidered brooches of architectural forms. In the spirit of miniatures, the brooches simplify architectural detail and reduce them down to essential shapes. The brooches are based on actual buildings from around the world, including examples of the Greek temple, The Roman triumphal arch, the Buddhist stupa, the East Asian pagoda and the pre-Columbian pyramid. Particular examples of these have been selected based on how subject matter lends itself to graphic representation and pattern.

The works begin as drawings created by Evangelos employing his distinctive reductive line drawing technique, developed over the last 10 years. These digital drawings are then interpreted as small textile brooches, hand sewn by Michelle. The precise digital drawings taking on the wobble of the handmade.

Window Walk | Rose Agnew X Dirty Dozen

Image: Rose Agnew

Image: Rose Agnew

Rose Agnew is a Melbourne artist whose interests in art, science, history and nature are the focus of her practice. Rose's explorations into the interior worlds of contemplation and intimacy are paired with the use of found objects and detailed imagery.

“I have replicated nature's more unusual plants and flowers using component parts from artificial flowers sourced from op shops, and constructed boutenniers from vintage cutlery and sterling silver.  These floral adornments mimic traditional wedding/debutant/formal corsages and lapel buttonholes, but are much larger in scale, and while convincingly realistic, are not the usual choice in flowers. For example, I have replicated a flowering nepenthes (pitcher plant), aristolochea, and flowering palm frond - no red roses and baby's breath here! 

I use recycled elements extensively in my practice as a jeweller and artist. It is of great importance to me to use materials and resources sustainably and responsibly, and I love the challenge of getting as much out of my resources as I possibly can.  this work continues an ongoing interest in nature, representations of nature, gender politics and adornment.

Window Walk | John Brooks & Audrey Tan X Kuwaii

John Brooks has a background in textiles after studying at RMIT, and Audrey Tan studied jewellery at Melbourne Polytechnic, both meeting at Monash studying Fine Art (honours) in 2014. Merging our conceptual training with the technical skill built up through our practical training in craft mediums, a link formed between our practices and our disciplines. Working through the connections we have to our textiles and jewellery, and attributes we project onto them, we see these objects as talismans, or charms.

The potential of objects to aid our mental well being is explored through a series of material combinations incorporating textiles and jewellery. Manifestations of positive experiences are integrated with the aim of prolonging or savouring a good feeling. On the other hand, material representations of frustration are destroyed and embedded into sculptures– symbolic objects have been broken down and reconfigured through a cathartic ritual process. Tangible traces from daily life have been hoarded because of the belief that in the right combination they might be a potent charm for bringing luck or warding off negativity. Arrangements of lucky and unlucky objects form a collaborative conversation about self-diagnosing and self-healing. The placebo effect of ritual acts as a kind of medicine – maybe the act is more healing than the outcome.

Merging both discarded or recycled materials (for instance: oyster shells from a luxe dining experience, the ashes of thoughtful gift, hand-carved wasp nest) and aspirational materials (fine silk, precious gems, keshi pearls), a series of charm-like objects will be created collaboratively, and intended for suspension in a window, preferably with some floor space for a rug-like object. The work will be installed at Kuwaii, in the Cathedral Arcade, in a considered way that plays with negative space to achieve visual balance.

Living Colour

Sarah Parker creates an installation of small sample specimens studies, cast or replicated from coral, rock and feather and made from high fired porcelain. Some are bleached of colour either black or white, some vibrant, colourful sample specimens with glaze, stains and lustres, indicating what we have now but may lose due to climate change and human affects. The eclectic samples and their installation recall a museum collections display for viewing and contemplation of what exists and how it is changing:

“Our natural environments are losing their colour. Coral is bleaching, forests are burning and being cleared As these animals and eco systems die so will colour drain from them.

But what does this mean for our visual senses? How will this affect us and our perception of the world without the vibrancy of underwater reefs corals and fish, or lush mossy textures and rich earthy tones of ancient rainforests? What about the loss of colour from the bird life integral to these ecosystems?

Could this alter our sense of wonderment and our perspective of the world around us as colour in nature is depleted? Everything is connected, and as an artist I draw on the colours found in nature to make sense of our world. Losing this important part of our natural environment will alter and devastate our sensory perception.

I work in a museum and Im curious how the documentation of our environment will affect our understanding of the outside environment as its changing, and as colour is depleting from our planet.”

In the Dirty Dozen, you’ll find a display of Catriona Fraser’s bead weaving and bead embroidery pieces. 

“All of the pieces have words or short phrases written in beads.  I like the juxtaposition of the pithy comments with the craft itself, which is time consuming and fine-grained.  They are like tweets which take hours and hours to write.  Tweets that have been committed to. Trump could do worse than take up beading.”

‘Fecund little feet’ dance in the mirrored Capsule Space, down in The Campbell Arcade.

“My concept entails the presentation of works from my Porous Vessels series. With bulbous bodies and fecund little feet, these animated forms can appear like geological matter sprung to life. Created with an experimental blend of Australian porcelain, combustible organic aggregates and Victorian beach sands, their material profiles are distinctively raw and delicate; imbued with the peculiar mineral properties of their origins. With porous walls they query the time-honoured notion of containment – so often embodied in ceramic vessels – to instead suggest a breathable membrane. Presenting these spirited forms en masse, I wish to imply a field of material relationships that is alive and shifting.”

Narelle is an early-career Australian artist with a passion for the messy unpredictability of experimental ceramic process.

She approaches ceramic enquiry as a field of experimentation and engages her materials as wilful co-conspirators.

Designed for use as a wrap to carry a baby or toddler, this hand-dyed, hand-woven cloth is inspired by the colours of a eucalyptus tree. I have always been surrounded by eucalypts, exploring Melbourne's beautiful parks and during holidays spent in central Victoria. With so many different types of eucalypts, their diverse colours, textures and scents continue to fascinate me. The way eucalyptus trees change through the seasons has inspired my design for this piece: starting at the base of the tree, the colour evolves as we move along the trunk, over the layers of peeling bark and into the canopy, before exploding into pink as we reach the blossoms above.

My passion is creating one-of-a-kind hand woven textiles using heritage craft techniques. Each piece is handmade by me, in my studio in Melbourne, so every one is unique. I use natural fibres – wool, cotton and silk – to create unique pieces that are made to last a lifetime. 

I have three looms; each one is different and appropriate for creating pieces of varying size and complexity.

Cloth Entry

The act of making is a process of development cultivated by the surrounding environment and ignited by the people we have a connection to.

A daily practice of hand weaving for a period of sixty three days creates a physical expression of these developed thoughts and practices, building a physical structure of memory in the non conscience mind.
The physicality in the brain for memory making is expressed as a metaphor and is visible through the materiality of the woven shibori cloth marked through the course of time.

The materials have been found from secondhand sources with consideration to the homespun yarn which holds special significance to place and family.

Deborah McHugh brings a contemporary aesthetic to the traditional craft of hand weaving with multi shaft and tapestry looms. Her technical knowledge gained through studying Studio Textiles at Melbourne College of Textiles (RMIT).

Each works identity is formed through the narrative of individual processes and captured in the physical and visual texture of the material.

An installation for a library:

“Much of the research behind this project would not have been possible without the State Library archives, they informed my case study of unknown neo-classical Australian marble sculptor and expert, Charles Francis Summers.

I was introduced to Summers by a chance encounter with a man who has deep respect for Summers. This man has in his possession four objects that once belonged to Summers - a glass plate portrait, marble chisel, writing pen and journal.

I studied the objects of Summers by remaking them using the slow labor-intensive methods - embroidery and marble carving. My research extended to archives such as the State Library of Victoria and to Italy where I began to focus on the life of Summers and followed in his footsteps beyond making as he did, in marble.

I follow significant successes and failures surrounding the work of Summers. I have visited significant historical sites and work from his past and have made as he did, creating my own inevitable failures. I culminate the focused narrative I construct of Summers and my own to contemplate monuments, mourning and memorialising.”

Elyse de Valle is an artist and archivist who engages with materials and site to express the conceptual concerns of her art practice. De Valle’s work explores little known narratives that permit her contemplation of creative labour, memories, trauma, loss and experience. It is often a pursuit to trace, re-examine and respond to social history, reflecting on how memory is encoded directly and indirectly within the built form.

Commonplaceness

Our everyday habits and the objects we interact with are often overlooked, but they could be viewed as being a part of an invisible network that connects us though touch and action. 

This project seeks to bring our attention to the unnoticed; it looks at how we can find comfort in rediscovering these everyday objects as things that connect us as individuals. 

Therefore, it is important to me that the work is both interactive and wearable. I hope that through interacting with the piece, the wearer might reflect on the ability of everyday objects to represent aspects of the shared human experience. 

Aphra Cheesman is a Melbourne based artist, originally from New Zealand. Her process is both playful and observant. She is interested in the in-between moments of daily life and is constantly looking for objects, materials and things in her everyday that she finds odd, beautiful, humorous, or simply intriguing. Once she notices something, she can’t un-notice it; this begins the process of translating her observations into further research, and making work.

Pauline Delaney and Roze Elizabeth are two established artisans of their craft. Both have been working with Glass and Screen Printing, respectively, for over 40 years each to produce custom made and limited series artisan products. They are both dedicated teachers, with years of teaching practice for Institutions and for small, tailored workshop groups.

In this installation, these two artists from River Studios bring together pieces that focus on a cross-over between their individual areas of interest and a common pursuit of colour, form and light.

Pauline has always embraced the colour available in glass to enhance her work, whether blown pieces or her current practice of flame work to create unique jewellery and original glass beads.

Roze leans to the classical periods of history for the creation of textiles and wood products that enliven the home environment. Her love of Italy is evident in the recent focus of exhibition work and works on bamboo.

Roze Elizabeth is an industrial trained screen printer: “I have printed for over 40 years. I print commissions, commercial homewares products, art pieces, and run workshops in my studio.
I have taught in a variety of secondary schools and RMIT. My focus is printing for textile and wood surfaces.”

Pauline Delaney loves working with hot glass: “it is fluid and alive.  I have worked in glass 40 years from glassblowing to lampwork glass. Currently working in glass jewellery I accept commissions and run workshops from my studio at River Studios in West Melbourne.”

Both artists are currently in residence at River Studios; a warehouse in West Melbourne, managed by Creative Spaces.
