{The Powerhouse Pt 2: Love Lace}

Well, If you are ever taking the kids to the powerhouse and are remotley 'arty', 'crafty' or appreciate such divine things.....SEE THIS EXHIBITION!!! If you know me at all, you will know that this was something I loved and wishes I wasn't starting to feel the sore muscles of the (as I found out later) worst flu! Taking the idea of lace into many mediums and interpretations was refreshing, inspiring, fascinating and just plain flippin' jaw dropping! :)

"134 artists from 20 countries unleash their passion for lace in this spectacular exhibition of winning entries and finalists in the Powerhouse Museum International Lace Award.
Playful and inventive, the works on display present a provocative challenge to traditional concepts of lace. The artists push lace techniques in surprising new directions — knitting human hair into sculptures of human organs, crocheting steel wire into a ghostly motor engine, carving lace patterns from the body of a rusty old truck. See lace in fashion, jewellery, sculpture, lighting and digital multimedia installations."

If you are not in Sydney or can't make it - here is a little taste of it with much better photography than I could get rushing through with my iPhone take 2 minutes to {watch this}.
