Free entry
Arc One,
45 Flinders Ln,
Melbourne

OPENING: FRI 13 MAR, 6–8PM
FLOOR TALK: SAT 14 MAR, 3.30–4.30PM
Johnny Nargoodah is a Nyikina man who has spent much of his life working with leather as a saddler on remote cattle stations; Trent Jansen is an avant-garde object designer from Thirroul in New South Wales who regularly experiments with leather and animal pelts in his collectable design work. ‘Partu’ is the Walmajarri word for ‘skin’, and is also their latest collaborative project experimenting with unorthodox outcomes resulting from the confluence of their oddly mismatched sensibilities and skills in working animal skins.

Come to ARC ONE Gallery on SAT 14 at 3.30 to hear insights from the designers on the cross-cultural collaboration and experimental making processes that lead to ‘Partu’, Johnny Nargoodah and Trent Jansen’s latest collaboration in furniture design, realised in animal skin.
