How the Light Gets In – A collaborative exhibition of contemporary jewellery

9 Jul

Artists from L to R: Nicholas Jones, Ellie Mücke, Kate Tucker

I’ve collaborated with a collection of Melbourne’s most talented artists to bring together this exhibition. Each artist began with a pair of earrings and a necklace designed by me. Together we worked to re-imagine them, incorporating their skills, aesthetics and materials to articulate and illuminate new ideas, new feelings and new perspectives.

Participating artists: Clare James, Nicholas Jones, Chaco Kato, Ellie Mücke, Tai Snaith, Kate Tucker, Beck Wheeler.

 When: Opening 6-8pm, Tue 7 Aug 2012
Where: e.g. etal,167 Flinders Lane,Melbourne

Exhibition runs 6-18 Aug 2012


The Repair Workshops featured in Green Magazine!

1 Jul

I’m so excited to anounce that Green Magazine (one of my favourite mags!) has profiled our project The Repair Workshops in this month’s issue.

This is also a great time to remind you to register your items to be repaired by our amazing collaborators over the weekend of  the 30th and 31st of July.

Speaking of collaborators, here we are!

Four weeks to go until the project and there’s a lot of work still to be done. We’ve been making regular visits to Vinnies and the Brotherhood to sift through their skips and  pick out the exciting bits (stuff otherwise destined to landfill) to use in our closed workshops in the week leading up to our big weekend. The fixed and re-imagined pieces made during this closed collaboration will then be on display and sold in a live auction with all proceeds going to the good people at Environment Victoria. I must say the insight i’ve gained through these visits to the opshops has really opened my eyes to what I perceive to be a very large waste problem, with the charities coping the full brunt of it. Each week they are forced to spend an average of $400 dealing with the removal of other people’s junk. I think its safe to say that most people have good intentions when dropping off stuff to charities – they think “this kettle just needs a bit of a clean and it’ll come up great” or “This table is a classic, all it needs is a fixed leg” – but unfortunately this line of thinking leads to the donated item having to be sent straight to landfill, as the charities don’t have the space, the people-power, the time or the tools/means to store, clean or fix everything that they get donated. As a natural born hoarder, and as someone who can see the beauty in almost anything, seeing all this amazing stuff go to landfill just kills me. As I said, the problem is LARGE and feeds into even bigger issues of over-consumption and they way we are geared towards a largely throw-away society, but we CAN be part of the solution. We can start by thinking twice about what we are giving away to charity and why. If you wouldn’t offer it to your best friend, then the charity probably doesn’t want it either. WASH things before you drop them off, fix the things you can and ALWAYS drop them off within business hours because as soon as they’re rained on they’re usually ruined.

Fhewf, I better leave it there, I have things to fix – and there’s only four weeks to go……

WEARIT – Exhibition and Workshops

27 Feb

Photography- Tobias Titz, Hair and Makeup- Yvonne Borland, Styling- Anita Cummins, Model- Paige

Here’s a little blurb about an exhibition & series of workshops I’m presenting in March…

Young Melbourne designers, Emma Grace and Ellie Mücke invite you to be inspired by their novel approaches to making new from old.  Through the Wearit exhibition and workshops, the designers aim to facilitate a shift in the way that we consume fashion items.

You are invited to participate in a workshop, bringing along broken, un-loved and out of date jewellery and shirts to fix or re-create into something new and unique.  Simultaneously an exhibition of new works by Grace and Mücke will provide inspiration, challenge conventions and offer new perspectives.

Wearit is an opportunity to re-connect with community in a regional location and a forum to exchange skills, materials, thoughts and inspiration.  Together we can begin a mental and physical shift away from a ‘throw-away culture’. Come and visit Stockroom this March, and see how wearing the consequences of this shift can be truly inspirational. 

Wearit is a participant of the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program 2011
