Presented within Melbourne Design Week 2022,  Convent based jeweller, Katheryn Leopoldseder reveals an intimate and innovative exhibition experience, four years in the making.

Unveiling stories gathered from more than fifteen years of arts practice at the Abbotsford Convent, Leopoldseder shares deftly crafted contemporary jewellery and objects; coupled with immersive audio-digital responses from musicians, photographers, animators, and actors.

Sometimes small and intimate, at other times dramatically scaled up, amplifying connections between worn objects as identity markers and the influence of place. The jewellery and objects meander through facets of what the Convent might have meant to communities of the past, its extraordinary salvage from private redevelopment and its significance to creatives and visitors who share in its story now.

Bring your smart phone and headphones to engage in this special digital experience.

Opening launch
Sunday 20 March 2-4pm
Opening address by Living Treasure, Master of Australian Craft, Marian Hosking.
