Object Therapy to open in Tasmania
Design Tasmania welcomes the travelling exhibition Object Therapy from July 6th to September 19th.
The journey began in May 2016, when over 20 broken objects presented by the public were repaired by researchers in Canberra before enduring ‘therapy’. Ranging from furniture to household appliances to sentimental objects were all treated and reimagined by noted Australian and international designers and artists including Trent Jansen, Liam Mugavin, Henry Wilson and Alison Jackson.
In transforming these loved but broken items into objects of delight and surprise, Object Therapy showcases innovative design solutions while exploring the attachments we form with objects. As a project and exhibition, it encourages us to rethink our habits of material consumption while exploring and celebrating the role and creative possibilities of repair in society.
Object Therapy is a project by Hotel Hotel. Developed in partnership with UNSW Art & Design and ANU School of Art and Design.
