Remade-Reloved 2023

Curated by Bridget Kennedy for Australian Design Centre, this group installation features 12 makers who have repurposed costume jewellery and other found objects into new pieces.

Remade-Reloved celebrates the opportunity for renewal. Each maker has converted the discarded and unloved into the precious – using less to create more.

In creatively and actively repurposing, the makers present us with ways of writing new narratives and reassessing our meaning of precious.
