"Techno craft: the work of Susan Cohn 1980 to 2000"
2003-03-14 until 2003-06-09
National Gallery of Victoria
Melbourne, VI, AU Australia

Susan Cohn is a craftsperson – jeweller, metalworker, designer – and an ardent modernist. Since 1980, Cohn has been working from her studio in the centre of Melbourne. The subterranean Workshop 3000 is a fascinating world where the artist’s sharp and witty intellect mixes with heavy machinery, precision tooling and techno music.

Cohn is one of the intellectual, avant-garde producers of metalwork in Australia. She has produced a large and diverse body of work that engages with modern life. Looking beyond the conventions of precious jewellery and towards the urban environment, Cohn’s work reflects on the modes and morés of contemporary street culture.

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Cohn has been refining a set of minimalist forms. These include her signature doughnut bracelets, sleek tableware shapes and the coolest condom holders.

Techno craft: the work of Susan Cohn 1980 to 2000 is supported by Australian Air Express. Following its initial showing in Canberra, the National Gallery of Australia Travelling Exhibition has toured to Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Hobart and now Melbourne.
