Art in Threads

 At the end of January this year, Ashley Lim came up with the idea of creating works beyond fashion and art and was planning the fashion show and exhibition in April. It was a tight schedule for the creation and production but I gladly joined in the part of the creation as a photo media artist with the love of the idea. Sweeping away this worry about tight schedule, she executed the project with great drive with the help of a wonderful voluntary team.

7 artists and 7 young fashion designers teamed up for the collaboration. I liked Alexandra Malpass‘s ‘Rust’ collection which she experimented on fabrics with variations of nature. And she was inspired by my work ‘Cabinet of curiosities of identity‘ which explored  my main theme ‘identity’ with the body casting and an old photographic print process, ‘Gum bichromate’. So our work ‘Aleatory’ had been created. And the dancer Charlotte Davies presented this garment with beautiful movement at the opening. Anna Healey’s choreograph connected 7 garments in one line, presenting each unique piece at the same time and harmonized with the elegant setting design by USYD masters of architecture students along with Payam Khalili’s powerful music.

I hope this chance would be the step for further creative collaboration process in the field of art, fashion, architecture, performance, music and more with the results which build upon what we envisaged.

Perception

 This semi group/solo exhibition plan started a year ago as we needed to book the Balmain Watch House Gallery at that time. We had regular meetings since.

Exhibition title came: P(painting)erC(ceramics)eP(photography)tion.

Designed the e-invitation.

Art works list of three artists was made:

1. Madonna Munch Self

   .

    .

31.  Three Things Together

     .

     .

55.  Glow                                  

Wrote the Artist statement:  ‘Identity’ is my main theme in my photo media works……………………………………………….. ………………I believe in this medium as its own unique creative expression method not as replication or edition.

Last moment of finalising all assemblage of 30 works: It was hard to make nice frame look with low budget.

One and half days of installation for two and half day exhibition.

Opening night: People who care about my works came along and it cheered me up.

Saturday: The strong line of morning Sun ray was passing self-portraits and landed on the installation work ‘Cabinet of curiosities of identity’ in my exhibition cell room. Originally I wanted display these multi Gum bichromate photo prints in a real cabinet but I couldn’t figure out the proper way especially for this heritage building.

This exhibition gave me the good chance to show this work with the closest way of  the presentation which I wanted including 12 resins of ‘Astrology’, ‘Milk Maid’ on the white tray with resin coating, ‘The portrait of Dorian Gray’, and photopolymer printmaking ‘Cafe Florence’ series.

Sunday: Thought about being an artist and relationship with people around under the nice backyard garden light and finished the show with de-installation, wrapping and carrying back home.
