Lynn Kelly - Souvenirs

Lynn Kelly, Posy - Stg Silver, Rubber


29 August - 10 September 2011

As a borrower and appropriator, in this installation Lynn Kelly uses traditional materials – sterling silver and jet – combining them with non conventional materials and found objects, such as piano keys, synthetic hair, and even an umbrella handle. These works invite the viewer to re-examine the boundaries between historic and contemporary objects and consider what is meant by a ‘colonial influence’.
