Craft ACT presents Creative Licence artist floor talks

Where: Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre, Level 1 North Building, 180 London Cct Civic.

Cost: free

Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre invites you to attend a series of artist talks to be held at the Craft ACT gallery on Saturday November 15 from 1pm. Creative Licence artists Sam Cameron, Ximena Briceno and Elizabeth Kelly will be speaking about their works in the exhibition and their general design practice.

Curated by Anne Radimin, Creative Licence is a uniquely Canberra focused exhibition that invites 15 locally based, established and emerging craft and design practitioners to reinterpret, reuse and repurpose the remaining Canberra Centenary number plates to create new artworks. These innovative artworks incorporate design elements that respond to Canberra as Australia’s only designed city.

Cameron, Briceno and Kelly’s works presented in the show approach the brief from very different angles: Cameron’s C100 Line Runner, a robot controlled by an Arduino, explores Canberra’s Civic road network and is a clear example of Canberra’s unique iconography; whilst Briceno’s A Necklace for a Wari Princess transforms the number plates into a contemporary take on the jewellery and metalwork of pre-Columbian Peru, inspired by both the artist’s Peruvian heritage and the exhibition, Gold of The Incas: Lost worlds of Peru which showcased at the National Gallery of Australia in 2013. Elizabeth Kelly’s work uses the Archimedes Palimpsest as a main source of inspiration and the artist presents three works that explore the importance of knowledge transfer and ingenuity in progressing and developing any creation.
