Material Provenance Project

Material Provenance is an upcoming exhibition to coincide with and promote the launch of a global open-source material research project of the same name created by Clay Matters members, who are part of a community interested in interrogating questions of environmental impact in their work. 
Silica Quarry, Lang Lang VIC

Exhibition at Craft Victoria
April 29 - June 14, 2004

Four past and present artists from the Clay Matters collective present works produced using responsibly sourced materials and participate in a public program to discuss their research project. The participants choose to work from the short list of currently available Australian mined & milled materials, and document the supply chains that bring these materials into their studios through the lenses of the three core ethics of permaculture: earth care, people care and fair share. Examining the questions of locality, transparency in material sourcing, energy usage, and circularity as they highlight the variety of colors, textures, and overall aesthetics possible within a more understood palette.
