Pocket Garden, 2010, paper, cardboard, book-cover cloth

My miniature books present a secret garden, which can be carried in a pocket. I explore the idea of books as a discourse on the ideas and questions about our interrelationship with natural world. By using paper as a basis of landscape, it reinforces the notion of the delicate natural world that we seek to manipulate and construct our images and desires from.

Insert Coin Here

is a group exhibition curated by Nella Themelios & Kim Brockett. The exhibition is part of the 2010 L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival cultural program.

Insert Coin Here
comprises of two vending machines strategically placed in public spaces around the Melbourne CBD. Containing limited edition 'fashion objects' produced by over 60 Melbourne-based artists, the vending machines are activated when a member of the public inserts a $2 coin. The exhibition explores alternative interfaces of exchange for fashion, the mechanised system as a form of 'fashion dialogue'. More broadly, it thinks through discourses around public space and the role that fashion might play in it.
