Minna Loft Meet Me
69 Smith Street Gallery Fitzroy 19 Aug-6 Sept
Opening Sat 22 Aug 4pm
Meet Me is an exhibition of Minna Loft’s jewellery works created in response to many days spent together with different women exchanging skills and ideas. The final objects are the tangible result of communication that has occurred throughout the making process.
The jewellery pieces created are made using skills such as beading and textile related crafts taught to me by women with a diverse range of backgrounds. The making process is a means for social interaction and communication while I engage with traditional craftspeople both in Australia and abroad. This approach enables me to utilise craft making processes to encourage and assist the preservation of cultural heritage and diversity while engaging in a dialogue on how craft is appreciated both locally and globally. Meet Me is an opportunity for me to honour the skills of the women I continue to work with.
