Melbourne’s Mr Kitly presents ‘Not Wow’ by Kirsten Perry from Saturday 11 March until Sunday 30 April.
Paper can fold. Clay can be squished. Wood can be sawn. Metal can bend. It’s pretty obvious and unremarkable but pretty amazing at the same time. On visiting sacred spaces in Australia and Japan, it was the material of the object that really made an impression on Kirsten Perry.
For ‘Not Wow’, Perry has used these materials to create a series of totems of moments that hold personal significance – a joke, a tea break chat, a feel-good memory. The objects allude to folk craftsmanship and subconscious spiritual rituals.
You can read the essay written by Dr Anika Ramholdt for the exhibition here.

NewActon. One word, one fine place to live, work and just be. We took the rulebook, looked up classic principles of excellence in architecture and urban design, ripped out the pages that prescribe same-same and characterless, and added a chapter entitled, “How to create a truly innovative cultural precinct that shifts the status quo, and be awarded multiple times for doing so.” And then we scribbled our name on the title page in crayon.
