And so off we went to the #VAMFF [Melbourne Fashion Festival] VIP preview … I made a small wearable sculptural object – a fleshlump necklace. Continuing my practice of re-purposing my sculptures, each time layering the subject of one onto the next – these lumps were made from off cuts from the Why Listen to Animals? speaking fleshlumps, which were in turn made from the full human-animal figure from beautiful little dead things. They were strung on a latex ‘milk’ string from boobscape (udder matters).
I’ve been curated into an exhibition ‘Selvedge’ as part of Melbourne Fashion Festival next year. Looking forward to working with 3 other artists on this project which will emerge in March 2017. More news as the project shapes up soon. Selvage @ VAMFF
