Artists and designers Andrea Day, Angela Ferolla, Charlene O’Brien, Katrina Virgona, Louise Wells, Lyndell Darch, Mary Ann Dawson, Minaxi May, Sarah Zel Chescoe, Susie Vickery and Trish Bygott explored fabric manipulation techniques, clothing deconstruction and reconstruction to present an installation of wearable, sculptural forms using upcycled and repurposed materials, reconnecting with lost skills and working against consumerism.
A series of embroidered “Hacking Jackets” by Jude van der Merwe, Fiona Hook, Emma Seaton and Ann Wilson were displayed alongside a selection of student work by Ella Vischi, Caitlyn Chodakowsky, Lilith Kirk, Amon Veitch, Lizzie Rice, Alivia D’Souza and Erin Bosch (created in the annual WOWA workshop program).
The exhibition complements the annual WOWA Wearable Art Parade held for the first time this year in the historic Midland Junction Arts Centre.
