Future of the Anthropocene
Pennie Jagiello is an accomplished Melbourne based contemporary jeweller who recently completed a Masters in Fine Art at RMIT, titled: 'Remains to be seen, worn and heard: an inquiry into anthropogenic debris investigated through contemporary jewellery objects'.
Her ongoing research investigates the objects we use & discard, and the environmental consequences of unsustainable practices. Her masters body of work was constructed entirely from anthropogenic debris collected from beaches and coastal environs across Victoria, New South Wales & the Pilbara.
Pennie was a finalist in the 2017 Victorian Craft Award, and recently selected for a residency with Form Gallery in Western Australia, enabling her to visit the Pilbara between 2014- 16. Her works have been exhibited nationally at selected Australian galleries, as well as showing in alternative art spaces. Pennie is a short course lecturer in the school of Fashion and Textiles at RMIT, as well as a guest lecturer in the School of Art.
Please join us for Opening night on the 4th October 5.30pm till 7.30pm.
The exhibition runs until Wednesday the 17th of October 2018.
