The Cliché, 2010, pressed badges, set of 5, 25mm diameter each

Fashion trends may come and go, but the clichés remain the same. Michael Pham extends this notion by playing upon these with a set of whimsical badges that express them without uttering a single word.

This enables the audience to truly live the fashion cliché, whilst being completely ice-queen cold.

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.
