The carousel turns and with each revolution comes an evolution, as familiar views are given fresh insight. And so it is in contemporary jewellery and object, as new generations of artists climb aboard. From old ideas spring new revelations, familiar forms become strange under new hands and well-loved materials produce striking innovations.
Carousel is a snapshot of this particular moment in contemporary jewellery and object. The exhibition frames eleven early career artists from Australia, Austria, Finland, Germany, New Zealand and Thailand at a crucial point on their trajectory, between graduation and life as an established artist.
In association with Radiant Pavilion.
