Over September my new site-specific work, restricted area, will be a part of the open exhibition, ROADMAP, presented by State of Disaster and co-curated by Tameka Carter & Rute Chaves. The exhibition is across the 3031 postcode (Kensington, Flemington) in Victoria, Australia, and
Over July and August my miniature work, Baba Yaga Hut, is featured in the exhibition, ‘Doll House: Miniature Worlds of Wonder’, presented by the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) at Como House and Garden.
“Step inside the doll house and lose yourself in a miniature world of wonder and intrigue.
Explore the doll house from its traditional form to the space it occupies in the virtual and intangible worlds.
Get up close to over 40 doll houses, many previously unseen from the 1880s to the present day. Together with furniture, accessories, ephemera and virtual experiences, Doll House: Miniature Worlds of Wonder unlocks the imagination of makers, collectors, activists and players and reveals the stories hidden in their worlds.”
I am delighted to be working with Paul Yacoumis on EPISTOLARY, an online exhibition and a programme of events as a part of Melbourne Design Week 2021, an initiative of Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV.
Epistolary is a digital exhibition and self-guided tour of the city featuring a collection of ‘love letters’ to Melbourne. Through an evolving gallery the exhibition explores what makes local places and spaces unique, and includes online workshops that provide an opportunity to create and share your own love letter to places you care about
In the lead up to the launch on March 26th, you can find out more here:
This invitation only RMIT University online workshop is led by Tarryn Handcock and Paul Yacoumis with Alice Lewis and Lisa Carroll. During this session, RMIT’s School of Fashion and Textiles first year students consider how designers can play a role in ways we care and connect with the world around us, and respond to the question, ‘is this love?’
In this public online workshop led by Tarryn Handcock and Paul Yacoumis with rute chaves and Amandine Thomas, we ask: Why do you fall in love with particular places? What’s the most creative way you can express your love for a city? Join in conversation with the panel of artists and designers as they guide you through creating your own love letter to the world around you, and playfully approach caring and connecting with place.
Dr Tarryn Handcock is a cross-disciplinary designer, artist and academic in the School of Fashion and Textiles at RMIT University. Her work investigates fashion spaces and places, including relationships between people, place and dress. Through her work she is interested in the capacity for design to inspire storytelling; recent projects explore discourse, duration and dressing practices at an urban scale. She is also a life-long letter writer.
Paul Yacoumis is a part-time musician, writer, science nerd, social critic, coder, and armchair philosopher. He currently works at the intersection of data science, innovation, and public policy. The common thread: A dedication to exploring and improving the human condition, and inspiring renewed wonder and critical thinking in an increasingly fragmented world. He also likes making pretty things.
RMIT University, School of Fashion and Textiles invites you to this exhibition of original work by Tarryn Handcock, presented as part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival’s Cultural Program Project Series 2016.
