The following is a message from a Melbourne artist, looking for knitters to collaborate of a really cool sounding project. She is particularly interested in working with queer Melbourne people – but I think she would love to hear from anyone who is interested in the project (even a breeder from Sydney 😉 ).
I found you through Bex blog (Subversive Lesbian Anarchic Knitta). Hope you don’t mind me contacting you.
I am a Melbourne artist, and I’m creating an installation for an art exhibition for the 2008 Midsumma Festival (which is the equivalent of Mardi Gras in Sydney).
I’m looking for Melbourne based knitters who would like to collaborate on this project with me and my artist partner Justine Wallace.
In a nutshell, I am creating a satirical political installation that involves 50cm high models of world recognisable architectural structures, such as Big Ben, Empire State Building, Dubai Clock Tower, Taj Mahal, etc and I need clothing knitted for these structures, such as jumpers, beanies, scarves, ear muffs, etc. As I’m not a knitter, I’d love to work with queer folk that would like to create these gems.
Would you be able to help me source people (preferably in Melbourne) that may be interested in participating in this project.
Please email me if you can.
I look forward to hearing from you.
