An exhibition of perfectly imperfect objects, collected from around the world. Curated by Karen McCartney, Sharyn Cairns and Glen Proebstel, in collaboration with Hotel Hotel.
‘Perfect Imperfect’ springs from the pages of a new book by the same name by editor and author Karen McCartney, with photography by Sharyn Cairns and styling by Glen Proebstel. The book and exhibition are a celebration of accident, curation, collection, hesitation, collaboration, reuse and reimagining; and brings together contemporary design with well-worn objects to explore the established aesthetic of wabi-sabi in a new way. The exhibition is firmly sited in the now – where digital technologies and handmade processes are being merged to produce truly original objects and ideas.
The exhibition features local and international designers and artisans whose work best exemplifies the theme including exhibiting artists include Guy Keulemans, Don Cameron, Martyn Thompson, Alison Coates, John Wardle, Alana Wilson, Julian Watts, Jacqui Fink, Sharyn Cairns, Nectar Efkarpidis, James Shaw and Marjan van Aubel.
‘Perfect Imperfect’combines ceramics, art and sculptural pieces, textiles, photography and found objects to form one cohesive study of imperfection.
Opening party on Wednesday 27.4 from 6PM.
When:Until Sunday 8 May.

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.
