CURRENTLY @ D.I.P.JIMMY NUTTALL
@ D.I.P - Darlington Installation Project
Jimmy Nuttall's artfully draped silk scarf offers, as he says, 'a playful take on nationalism' with a 'luxury item presented in a provisional manner.' Of course, it is the Qantas silk scarf's iconic symbol and corporate logo draped across the gracious necks of flight attendants across generations, the "trolley-dolly" ambassadors of Australian good will, that might not be so.
Nationalism can become murky territory if we think too long, while Peter Allan sings along to "I still call Australia home", lifted as a Qantas commercial that might come back as a memory ruffling the playful elegance of Nuttall's iconic "sculpture", which also play's with the corporate name through its title.
D.I.P - or the Darlington Installation Project - is a satellite project of Slot and is a corner window gallery located at 30 Golden Grove on the corner of Abbercrombie Street.
Jimmy's exhibition continues Slot participation in Dispatch - a project linking window galleries across Australia.
