This exhibition showcases the results of David Bielander’s collaboration with Michelle Taylor. During his West Australian residency the Swiss-born jeweller met many people from Perth’s cultural sector and his exhibition captures Bielander’s interactions with, and perceptions of, the city’s cultural genealogy via a series of life-sized photographic portraits of some of Perth’s creative personalities taken by Taylor on a beach near Fremantle.

Bielander has created jewellery for each portrait and personally selected each subject. His selection of a niche but broad selection of local creative people, combined with Taylor’s photographs which capture the saturated light and colour typical of Perth beaches, offer a super-sized postcard of Western Australia’s social and cultural identity. The exhibition title is a reference to FORM’s tagline and a play on the state’s cultural dreams and idiosyncrasies.
