Hook, Wrap, Pull
Hook, Wrap, Pull is an exhibition that intends to initiate discussions about the contemporary dynamic between Art and Craft whilst participating in the creation of an art object using a craft technique. The Golden Wattle Hookers, an artist duo whose practice attempts to engage audiences through their use of mass crochet, will be creating an immersive and collaborative installation through out the duration of the exhibition and encourage visitors to add their own piece of crochet to the constantly evolving space.
The collaborative duo known as the Golden Wattle Hookers, was established in 2015 by Mother and Daughter, Jill and Holly O’Meehan. The Hookers practice attempts to engage audiences to question the stereotypes of crafts, particularly through out regional Australia. Inspired by the Country Womens Association (C.W.A) as well as referring to their iconic cook book, The Golden Wattle Cook Book, they together create playful and interactive installations through their shared love for making.
