KITX - Upcycled fashion reinvented
KITX attempt to REWILD the earth through the sourcing of organic materials from farmers practising regenerative agriculture and by supporting reforestation. They RENEW materials by generating want from waste. They REHOME past KITX collections as they move toward a circular fashion system. Through their principles of regeneration: rewild, renew and rehome, KITX is committed to harnessing the transformative power of storytelling through fashion. As they move beyond sustainability, KITX promises to create fashion by not only sourcing materials consciously but also by using their principles to regenerate and heal the earth. https://kitx.com.au/collections/denim

New tech to replicate ancient sculptures
The Oxford-based Institute for Digital Archaeology has created a high-precision replica of a horse’s head from the Parthenon Marbles and is working on another of the Centauromachy metope, in a bid to convince the British Museum to return the originals to Greece. The horse’s head has been chiseled by robot from Italian marble to serve as a model for another of Pentelic marble that will be seemingly identical to the original. The two replicas are expected to be finished by the end of the month and put on show in London.https://www.ekathimerini.com/multimedia/images/1188642/new-tech-to-bring-back-ancient-sculptures/

Mikala Dwyer’s idiosyncratic, personal spaces
“Mikala’s practice is predominantly installation-based, in which she creates spaces within the conventional architecture of the gallery, using materials that have a strong association with the body. Her interest in working within and against architecture is a reaction to the imperatives of ‘good design’ – Scandinavian modernism in particular. Her installations and sculptures are experimental and experiential architectures that play with the permeable and changeable nature of objects and our relationship with them. Her materials – plastic, fabric, plywood, plants and sound – are selected for their qualities of materiality or immateriality, and display an intentional lack of finish.” www.mca.com.au/artists-works/artists/mikala-dwyer/

Ayesha Green- New Zealand Artist
For Ngāti Kahungunu and Kai Tahu descendent Ayesha Green, being an artist has become an essential service she can provide for her whakapapa (ancestors). Based in Auckland, New Zealand, Ayesha’s cartoonesque painting practice seeks to engage with processes of reproduction and representation through the lens of cultural value systems. Yet for Ayesha, there is one main question that drives her work: what makes Māori art Māori art? She has made waves in the New Zealand art scene by disrupting Eurocentric systems of hierarchy and its associated cultural framework. She captures large complex histories, while also being incredibly personal.” www.aucklandartgallery.com/explore-art-and-
