Original Tailoresses’ Hall, Melbourne
During 1882-83 the tailoresses in Victoria became unionised and went on a series of strikes. For Radiant Pavilion, a contemporary jewellery event in Melboune, I cast 2483 resin pieces from belts and buckles.
There were 2483 names of women in the membership book.
The work was exhibited in Meeting Room 2 at Trades Hall, Lygon Street.
Current female union members sent me fabric samples attached to these postcards that I implemented into the casts.
Current unions supplied this material about the strike.
I was proud to be included in Kylie King’s AJF article, The Revolutionary Object
