Nests





Here are a few images of the gorgeous nests that were created for the Northern Exposure arts festival. If you get a chance, the display will still be up in the window of "imagine me" at 271 High Street in Northcote for a week. If you're there you must also peak in the next shop's window. In "Big Dreams" you'll see Al Stark's illustrative sculptural installation. It blew me away. I just wish there was more online information about him to pass onto you!
Have a great weekend.

northern exposure

I'm contributing work again to the Northern Exposure arts festival. This year for the festival component "High Views". I'm collaborating with a gorgeous troop of young women, and a collective titled "People-heart-People". The installation follows the idea of the home, and what we value in it. We have been busy weaving sustainable and recycled nests from cut-offs of plant-life, and industrial materials, following an ancient Australian Indigenous basket-weaving technique that is tragically beginning to be forgotten by younger generations. Indigenous Elder, Aunty Dot taught "People-heart-People" organiser, Emma Power, and Emma taught me. In an effort to keep this tradition alive, we'll be exhibiting our nests along High Street in Northcote for the arts festival from Friday 20th June to Sunday 22nd June. High Street will be blooming with opening night fever on Friday from 6-9pm. Please Come! Check out the website www.northernexposure.org.au
