Form and Face
Elise Sheehan and Martha Poggioli
Elise Sheehan and Martha Poggioli respond to the literal meaning of the two verbs ‘form’ and ‘face’, in combination with each of their technical comprehensi on. The terms act as a catalyst for both Martha and Elise to generate new ideas, while providing a framework, or set of parameters, to guide the production of objects. This exhibition is the culmination of the two artists’ solitary and collaborative investigations into the limitlessness of their mediums: resulting in an expanse of finished objects that are forced into existence through the lens of these two words.
This exhibition is part of Radiant Pavilion- a Melbourne Contemporary Jewellery and Object Biennial.
