fallow, the brilliant retailer in brisbane's buzzing fortitude valley area, presents the virtually yours jewellery exhibition. opening sun - may 4 the show features works from three luminary australian jewellers – silversmith alicia hannah naomi, jeweller and taxidermist julia deville and creative duo redivivo. julia deville, the renowned melbourne-based jeweller continues her fascination with all things morbid and deathly, utilising her training in taxidermy, her ability with gold, silver, bones and stone to create stunning but slightly unsettling works. alica hannah naomi fuses traditional gold and silver smithing with organic substances, examining the cyclical nature of life through birth, growth, decay and death into rebirth.
pierina dalle nogare and raffaella mackenzie, the duo that make up redivivo, have travelled widely across the planet, collecting rare and vintage objects, repurposing them and 'restoring them back to life', the latin translation of their label's name. the exhibition at fallow promises to be an incredible tactical experience and an insight into some beautiful work from some of australia’s premier jewellers today [on through may 14]. location: 354 brunswick street [fortitude valley].
