Hightide – Exhibition Development

September 23, 2013

Hightide - Exhibition Development for Falling Leaves Display

Last week I spent time developing my contribution to the Hightide exhibition opening in October at Artisan gallery, Brisbane. The exhibition accompanies the book of the same name. Launched earlier this year, it celebrates the last 10 years of design in Queensland and I’m delighted that my Falling Leaves collection of wallpaper and textiles is included in this historical publication.

Almost all the work featured in the book will be displayed in the exhibition. Work that is too large or unable to be brought to the gallery for various reasons will be represented photographically. I’ve been developing the display for my work in collaboration with the team at Artisan. I’ve also been working with Tahn Scoon on styling the display, discussing proportions, colourways and composition. The challenge here is to take the wallpaper and textiles from a domestic setting (in the home) and make them work in a gallery space, where the products are displayed rather than used. I’ve had lots of ideas and I can’t wait to show you the result!

In playing around with my three-dimensional ‘mood board’ (pictured above) I’ve included a couple of wallpapers that are not part of the Falling Leaves range… Some of you may recognise them? 

Stay tuned for details of the exhibition including dates, launch event and more!
