About Transplantation : A Sense of Place and Culture

This touring exhibition of contemporary narrative jewellery created by a group of artists based in either Britain or Australia will explore the sense of place and cultural identity through the theme of Transplantation. Each artist will examine their individual cultural identity as a consequence of their own personal and family experiences.

UK based artists

Jivan Astfalck-London, Norman Cherry Lincoln, Lin Cheung London, Jack Cunningham Birmingham, Jo Pond Derby, Laura Potter London

Australian based artists

Roseanne Bartley Melbourne, Nicholas Bastin Melbourne, Anna Davern Melbourne, Joung-Mee Do Sydney, Sheridan Kennedy Sydney, Bridie Lander Sydney/Birmingham 

Even jewellers whose work is not overtly illustrative often have a story to tell. In some cases participants’ existing reputations are already built on narrative and metaphor. Others are committed to this project because of personal interests and experiences, as migrants temporary or permanent; as descendants of migrants; or through witnessing schoolfriends leaving for new shores and knowing the sense of loss of those left behind.

Numbers are limited so to reserve a FREE place on the tour please email
