7th February: Studio 20/17, new work by Anna Davern [link]; “Gold and Steel are materials that are intrinsically tied to stories of our culture and how we define ourselves. Our cultural myths abound with references to gold and steel: Our egalitarian heritage that can be tied back to the Gold Rush and it’s opportunities for all, and the steel of Ned Kelly’s armour which represents our distrust of authority. The landscape from which these materials originate, is a defining element of our identity, from the iron-oxide red of the centre to the golden sands of its edges.“; artist talk on 18th February; until 21st February

But at the same time I do have an aim. In the end there should be a damned good piece of jewellery. I always try to invent processes I cannot control, I try to make things happen, I’m spontaneous and attentive, I follow my instinct and also my experience. This process of not knowing, not wanting, just playing, staying free, being without intention, casual…and suddenly getting excited…and then recognizing the point when one has to take control again, is a balancing act.” Doris Betz
