Presented as part of the 2018 Melbourne Design Week, Artefacts was a curated exhibition of objects and artworks that explored the boundary between art and design. Curated by Jonathan Ben-Tovim, Makiko Ryujin and Michael Gittings, Artefacts presented a vision of 10 Australian object makers pushing the outer limits of what design can be. Whether they were reinterpreting traditional crafts, exploring cultural references or creating new visual iconography, the Artefacts participants seeked to achieve more than just utility through their work.
Although spanning a variety of disciplines and creative techniques, the participants were tied together by their desire to be hands-on and process driven. By presenting work in a gallery context, they were free to challenge themselves to explore new territories.
Participants include: Jonathan Ben-Tovim, Dan Bowran, Fred Ganim, Michael Gittings, Nicolette Johnson, Guy Keulemans and Kyoko Hashimoto, Sean Meilak, Makiko Ryujin and Maddie Sharrock.
