About this object
While travelling overseas Gabby O’Connor sent a group of artists art works crafted en-route and invited them to make a work in response. Textile designer Genevieve Packer received a selection of these hand-embellished letters and motifs. In response Genevieve, a dedicated ‘crafter’, created this 3D “craft terrorist”. “Through the idea of home coming jackets (appropriate considering Gabby’s imminent arrival) I arrived at a gang patch. The touring vest I thought was an appropriate reference to the travelling aspect of the work (making on the run), the patch about belonging, the utility belt housing everything a craft terrorist might need to implement their crafty terror. The use of leather because of both its perceived and actual material strength (and the unavoidable slightly sexy-chic bogan element - no half-hearted woosey crafters here!).” - Genevieve Packer
