Well we are back at work and the Easter break is now only a distant memory. The weather was perfect for holidays, unseasonably warm and sunny.
Over the break I took the opportunity to visit the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria) Triennial Exhibition. The promo reads “Featuring the work of over 100 artists and designers from 32 countries, the NGV Triennial surveys the world of art and design, across cultures, scales, geographies and perspectives …… explores cutting edge technologies, architecture, animation, performance, film, painting, drawing, fashion design, tapestry and sculpture”. It was wonderful!
Here a just a few of the exhibits.
This is an installation (a furnished domestic space) by Yayoi Kusama. Visitors were given a red poppy sticker and invited to stick it an where in the “house”. I visited at the end of this exhibition and by then every space was covered in poppies. You could no longer distinguish objects.
This is a hand-tufted rug by Alexandra Kehayoglou. The rugs draw into focus landscapes under threat of irreversible change. The rugs merge traditional rug-making techniques with detailed site analysis, drone footage and photography. You could take your shoes off and walk on the rug.
There is also the haute couture collection of Guo Pei gowns. Rihanna wore one of the Chinese designers creations to the Met Gala in 2015. They are incredible, over the top and eccentric but not to be missed.
And now for my card which is for Less is More Challenge - Case Card
