HAKK Installation by Gunjan Aylawadi

^^

When: Friday 6th October - Wednesday 15th November
Where: 101-115 William Street, Darlinghurst
Time: Tuesday-Sunday, 11am-4pm
Cost: FREE

Object Space is a newly created window gallery located at the offices of the Australian Design Centre at 101-115 William St, Darlinghurst. The exhibition space has direct street frontage and is accessible to view 24/7 from Friday 6 October 2017. The inaugural Object Space exhibition will feature the work of talented paper artist Gunjan Aylawadi. Sydney-based paper artist Gunjan Aylawadi presents HAKK, a large-scale, intricate paper installation. Gunjan draws her inspiration for this work from the patterns she grew up with in New Delhi, which repeat themselves in the city’s temples and mosques, in old architecture and in contemporary design. The work proposes a place where faith, culture and individual identities meet. Gunjan believes that many identities in India co-exist much as threads in a tapestry, where some differences are so striking and other boundaries so blurred that it is difficult to pinpoint where one faith and culture begins and another ends. HAKK means ‘to weave’ in Arabic and the installation is made with thousands of paper strips, cut and curled into paper ropes and glued onto hand-drawn patterns.
