What do they say about us on the other side of the world?
And what do you know about them?
This exhibition unites the northern and southern hemispheres through the work of jewellery and object artists from Australia & Estonia. In each country statements were collected from ordinary members of the public about their knowledge and opinion of the other country. Each artist chose a statement about their country from someone on the other side of the world. The piece they made is a reaction to this statement.
Words spoken across the globe invite a personal study of our own culture and a reaction to other’s perceptions of who we are. Each piece is a navigation of an outsider’s perspective and the resulting realisations and revelations about our own identity.
The two cultures have been explored through unverified perceptions and understandings. The resulting objects are repositories of both cultural and personal narratives. They examine the global flow of information between two physically and culturally separate countries and provoke an international exploration of self.

« Love, loyalty, possession and desire have been expressed and signified in jewellery objects for thousands of years. What ARE our societal beliefs on romantic love here and now? What jewellery do we wear to signify our ‘romantic’” status – to promise ourselves to someone, to hold another in thought upon our body, to lure a mate or to outwardly express our inward, and often, private erotic desires? What jewellery do we imagine as women, as sensual beings, lovers with bodies, minds, hearts and desires, fears and acceptance? »

Jewellery artists Tabea Reulecke (DEU), Maarja Niinemägi (EST) and Teresa Lane (AUS) present Prince Charming and the Palace of Happiness, bringing together the subjective lenses of three women of different cultural backgrounds to convey reflections, representations and imaginings of romantic love in jewellery and objects. The exhibition draws upon historic and mythological archetypes, gently interrogating contemporary notions of Eros while teasing out the knots of foreplay and lustily engaging in femininity, fetish, sirens, sweat and sweet memories of those that have touched us.
