Above Earth, Below Sea
Group exhibition co-curated by and including artwork by Michelle Genders
27th July to 14th August 2011
About the exhibition:
A group of Australian and Japanese artists made contemporary jewellery/objects that responded to this call out:
Objects originating deep in the ocean encircled by water or discovered high in the air above the earth. Exotic spaces more accessible by modern technology … rocket or scuba tank, blimp or submarine.
Places visited whilst on an adventure. A holiday to a new destination or wandering in your own imagination … an extraordinary experience.
Escape from the urban environment for spare time to play and relax. Feeling the elements on your skin and attending to details of the world you inhabit … a sudden feeling of awe.
