Melbourne’s Mr Kitly presents ‘Not Wow’ by Kirsten Perry from Saturday 11 March until Sunday 30 April.
Paper can fold. Clay can be squished. Wood can be sawn. Metal can bend. It’s pretty obvious and unremarkable but pretty amazing at the same time. On visiting sacred spaces in Australia and Japan, it was the material of the object that really made an impression on Kirsten Perry.
For ‘Not Wow’, Perry has used these materials to create a series of totems of moments that hold personal significance – a joke, a tea break chat, a feel-good memory. The objects allude to folk craftsmanship and subconscious spiritual rituals.
