An exhibition by Alexi Freeman and Tessa Blazey
March 6 – April 7, 2012
Pieces of Eight Gallery, 28 Russell Place, Melbourne
Pieces of Eight Gallery presents fashion designer Alexi Freeman and represented jeweller Tessa Blazey, collaborating on a major window installation that includes finished works and relics from their Autumn Winter 2012 ROCK STAR and Spring Summer 2012/2013 collaborations.The installation features their AW12 Interstellar Gown, an elaborate metal gown featuring thousands of tiny gold rings embellished into a geometric formation – fit for a sci-fi goddess to traverse the celestial sphere.
A marriage between artisanal workmanship and technology, their latest collaboration for SS12/13 is meticulously constructed from intricately cut acrylic in vivid fluoro orange. This dress has also inspired a suite of jewellery pieces that will be installed concurrently at editionx.com.au from March 6.
