FOR A GOOD CAUSE

EXHIBITIONS

FERAL: Rewilding Furniture

This exhibition features new works constructed from found timber by Ashley Jameson Eriksmoen. Eriksmoen’s work utilises found pieces of discarded and broken wood, reconfiguring components into unlikely, mutilated forms reminiscent of tropical flora and fauna. The series represents the conceptual idea of waste, sustainability, resource use and the disposable consumer culture of today. Her works address the distorted perceptions around value of materials and labour and the gap between the living world and the built world. The structural mash-ups occupy and re-wild the modern interior, challenging Cartesian notions of order, utility and the planned universe. 

Ashley Jameson Eriksmoen is Head of Furniture at the Australian National University School of Art, having completed her M.F.A in Furniture Design at Rhode Island School of Design. She has also worked in several design and woodworking studios across the world, including California, Oregon, Colorado, North Carolina, Norway and Australia. 

The exhibition opens  17 March and runs until Saturday 2 April at GAD – Gallery of Australian Design, 47 Jardine Street, Kingston. Gallery opening hours are Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm and Saturday 11am – 2pm (closed Good Friday – Easter Monday).
