Fiona Lynch designed and curated an eclectic assemblage of art, objects and industrial pieces that reflect her studio’s interest in technology and the natural world for Work Shop 4 at NGV Melbourne Design Week 2020.
Work Shop 4 explores a curiosity with hand craft across mediums and disciplines. The works contrast and coalesce, each demonstrating a human-driven interrogation of process. High-tech fabrications sit alongside artisanal crafts unified by a fascination with the natural world.
The collection combines bespoke pieces designed by Fiona in collaboration with trusted local craftspeople including Daniel Barbera, Catherine Shannon, Ross Thompson and Mark Douglass, and a curation of works by artists Rebecca Agnew and Jacopo Moschin exploring photographic and digital mediums.
The exhibited works collectively address how design can shape life at the intersection between the natural and the industrial while underlining Fiona’s interest in artistic collaboration – ever present in the studio’s practice.
