The act of making is taken to the streets in a performative walking exploration of tool use.
This work originates from a series of forty-two interviews of Melbourne jewellery and object makers about their most precious tool.
Frequently, the act of making is left obscured, with only the finished object being available to general view. These often-unobserved actions, shrouded in the mysteries of the solitary studio are examined, and reinterpreted into a performative tool.
This work is performed while walking in a 5km radius during Melbourne’s sixth lockdown.
This neckpiece is an outcome of that performance.
This event is part of Radiant Pavilion: Melbourne Contemporary Jewellery & Object Biennial 2021.
