The Goods Shed

Time to whip out the crochet needles.

The people at FORM have done it again at The Goods Shed with its latest exhibition“A Man, A Monster & The Sea by Indonesian artist Mulyana.

Mulyana’s environmental artwork features three coral reef knitted and crocheted installations and accompanying jellyfish. (Please note: Mulyana’s intricate and quirky handiwork may leave you feeling inspired to drive to the nearest Spotlight to grab some needles and a ball of yarn.)

The display showcases the reef’s life in stages with the brightly-hued reef being the most visually appealing. Above it, its personality-ridden jellyfish hang from the roof to give you the feeling of traversing through a crafty underwater world.

The reefs also include corals, reef species and cascades – all knitted and crocheted of course.

This colourful exhibition is children friendly and educational too -bringing awareness to the effects of coral bleaching around the world and how we can help conserve our oceans.

Adults can also enjoy a cuppa onsite at the small cafe onsite (tasty bagels included) while the children can play dress ups in the exhibition’s interactive room.
