Bad Beasts...

... have entered my head. I can't believe I didn't post about this before and now it's finishing!

If you haven't seen this exhibition currently showing at Craft Victoria then I highly recommend that you get along to it before it closes on the 16th October.

Natalia Milosz-Piekarska and Karla Way have created a very haunting installation of jewellery and objects in gallery one at CV.

(both images nicked from Natalia's blog - I hope that's ok?)

I initially thought that the installation might have worked better in a more intimate space like gallery 3 - creating a kind of protected hide-out. But when you walk through the space with these numerous talismanic pendants you become aware of the spacial limits of their protection more profoundly. It kind of reminded me of certain horror movies but in a good way.

And, of course, the jewellery is beautiful.

And in breaking news... The exhibition is to travel to Metalab in Sydney next year.
