Slice of Life at Craft Victoria

Slice Of LifeSlice of Life is a group exhibition curated by Sophia Cai, and examines a contemporary approach to everyday objects and still lifes through craft-based practices.

This exhibition at Craft Victoria will feature work by artists Mechelle Bounpraseuth, Julie Burleigh, Scott Duncan, Phil Ferguson (Chili Philly), Katie Jacobs, Josephine Mead, Tricia Page, and Cat Rabbit. This will show concurrently with Sun Room, a solo show by artist Tessy King curated by Jade Bitar.

Both exhibitions will be on view at Craft’s exhibition space from 22 April to 27 May 2017.

The artists work across diverse mediums including ceramics, textiles and jewellery to playfully depict natural and man-made objects to create familiar scenes from unexpected materials. This focus on ordinary scenes told through handcrafted works highlights the inspirations found in the everyday, and re-imagines our personal relationship to objects, history and nature.

Slice of Life and Sun Room will be on view from 22 April to 27 May at Craft, 31 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Australia. The exhibition launch will be held on Saturday 29 April from 4–6pm, and will feature a public performance by artist Chili Philly.
