WOOD: art design architecture is a landmark exhibition exploring the use of wood in contemporary Australian art, design and architecture.
The exhibition showcases unique works by contemporary Australian artists, designers and architects engaging with the material qualities of wood.
Representing a cross-section of current creative practices, modes of thinking and relationships to this fundamental material, WOOD is the result of a collaboration between two iconic South Australian organisations, JamFactory and the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide.
WOOD: art design architecture showcases work by contemporary Australian artists, designers and architects including Queensland designers Alexander Lotersztain (Brisbane), Brian Hooper Architect (Yeppoon), m3architecture (Brisbane) and Christina Waterson (Brisbane).
National artists, designers and architects include Billy and Lulu Cooley, ARM Architecture, Catherine Truman, Damien Wright, Drew Heath, Duncan Meerding, Greer Honeywill, Hossein Valamanesh, John Quan, John Wardle, Jon Goulder, Khai Liew, Lionel Bawden, Mance Design, March Studio, Marcus O’Reilly, Paul Morgan, Peter Walker, Sherrie Knipe, Simon Ancher, Tom Mirams, TreeHorn Design, Nawurapu Wunungmurra, Gary Warner and Zeljko Markov.
The exhibition includes furniture and functional objects, sculptural works (including wood carving by Indigenous artists), interiors and architectural work, and looks at the use of wood through three lenses; place and identity, sustainability and ecology, craftsmanship and technology.
