I have been disappointed by a few the shows recently at Object, but this one from (you can't say by) Bilson of her collected Birds Nests is outside the charter of a public gallery deemed to show craft.
Object is the only public specific craft/art space in NSW, yet the management select bad museum displays when there are many crafts workers desperate to have an exhibition in the space. I applied for a show there and was refused. I realise the importance of having work shown in public galleries for an artists career. How is a birds nest collection moving the craft in Australia forward. Is it a rip off of Fiona Hall? Birds do it better!
I withhold my name as I wish to re-apply to Object.
