EXHIBITION TIMES: 12–21 MAR, MON, 8AM–3PM, TUE–SAT, 8AM–11PM & SUN, 9AM–4PM
An exhibition of new work by Eugenie Kawabata at the Abbotsford Convent.

Blurring the line between art and design, Second life uses upholstery offcuts, which would otherwise be destined for landfill, to create a series of intriguing sculptural, watertight vessels.

Second Life explores the end of life potential of upholstery waste, as it is reborn and reimagined with new purpose.

The exhibition is intended to generate critical discourse amongst the design and broader communities on how design can play a role in diverting waste from landfill.

Eugenie Kawabata is an independent, Melbourne based maker designer. Her practice is informed by an interest in design’s transformation of materiality and how this affects the way we engage with objects. Her practice also focuses on the hands-on experience — the act of designing through making.
