This exhibition features the collaboration between local fashion designer and jeweller, Sharka Bosakova, and photographic artist Renata Buziak, screen printing by Jacek Rybinski and photographs by Louis Lim, Nadia Masot and Hannah Piper. Many of Sharka’s innovative designs use material silkscreen printed with images derived from Renata’s experimental ‘biochromes’. This unique photographic technique, developed by Renata, uses the chemical and biological reaction between decomposing organic matter and photographic emulsions. This exhibition includes short film of 'Enrapt' filmed by Donna and Tony Hamilton, edited by Tony Hamilton.
This exhibition features 100 stories of great Australian women who have broken professional barriers and 100 brooches made in response to these stories by 100 of Australia’s most talented women jewellers.
