Description

A solo exhibition by jeweller and public artist Melissa Cameron, presenting her take on the traditional forms of protest signage and adornment, banners and badges.

It consists of impeccably crafted large hangings alongside works of fine jewellery, made from a raft of non-traditional materials. It showcases pieces not seen outside the USA, made during the 6.5 years she spent living in Seattle, and continues with works made since her return to Perth.

Cameron’s large pieces use found materials to help convey their messages of social and environmental justice. They are exhibited with their jewellery-scale ancestors, pieces representing pivotal moments of her last 12 years of practice. Joining these is a suite of new jewels, made from the remnants and offcuts of her latest banner work rapidlyclosingwindow… #1, also making its debut in this exhibition.

The show coincides with the Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Australia conference on 5 October, and will host artist talks.
