The exhibition, installed at the Nishi Gallery, sprung from the pages, and launched, a new book by the same name by Karen McCartney with photography by Sharyn Cairns and styling by Glen Proebstel, published by Murdoch Books.

‘Perfect Imperfect’ brought together contemporary design with well-worn objects to explore the established aesthetic of wabi-sabi from a new standpoint where craftspeople, designers and artists are combining handmade processes with new technologies for making. It explored concepts of mutability, ugliness, the unfinished and incomplete, irregularity, serendipity, weathering and decay, tranquility, modesty and contrast. It celebrated objects imbued with these values – their humanity, their poetry, their honesty.

Exhibitions

While making Hotel Hotel we met lots of people making and thinking good things. Over time they became friends. We started an exhibition program where we presented the work of our friends. Over time this has grown into an annual exhibitions program that comes together to explore the human experience through the lens of local identity, objects and their meaning; the natural and built world; design experimentation and artisanal making. Our program is still made in partnership with old friends and co-conspirators but also emerging local artists (often self-taught and misunderstood). We also curate our own shows seeded from our current curiosities and thinking. Most exhibitions are installed in our own Nishi Gallery located in the gardens out the back of the hotel.
