The Life Outside Issue

Introducing the Life Outside issue of Habitus magazine. With life increasingly being absorbed into a digital space, there is never a more important moment to hold something tangible. In this context, the power of nature to have a physiological impact on our sense of wellbeing has never been more important. So how can we cultivate the benefits of the our natural environment in the most intimate of places – our homes? This was the question that helped to bring this issue of Habitus to life.

Invisible Forces

Australia

The latest exhibition at Sydney’s metalab gallery explores the power of nature through several jewellery designs.


There’s rarely a day goes by that we aren’t inspired by jewellers and their work. Jewellery represents that wonderful nexus of art and design, functionality and aesthetics. While, without photography, we’d find it so hard to tell the stories we tell. In fact, the photographer is almost always a storyteller.

So when we heard about the next exhibition at metalab, we were happy to give a shout out.

 

 

Amazing jeweller Linda van Niekerk (who we met recently over here) will collaborate with photographer Peter Whyte, who seek inspiration from each other’s work.

“The conceptual framework of Invisible Forces was formed around an exploration of the hidden powers of the natural world,” explains metalab’s Nina Cueva.

 

From the forces of movement that shape the surface of the sea, to the ripples on the surface of a pond disturbed by a stone and the bending of the grass by the wind, these natural forces are inspiration for both artists.

 

The juxtaposition of photography and jewellery is countered by a similarly limited colour palette, and of course, the unique shapes inspired by nature.

The exhibition open on 7 July at 6pm – to attend, RSVP to [email protected]
