Jewell Railway Station, Little Gold St, Gold St and Little Gold Lane, Brunswick 3056
1-6 September Viewable 24hrs
Guided discovery walk Sun 6 September, 2pm depart from Jewell Railway Station
The Shining is a cluster of small, semi-hidden objects and installations, discoverable for six days at the old Jewell Railway Station and surrounding streets in Brunswick. The work playfully references the madness of the gold rush during 1850s when crowds of luck-seekers streamed through, blinded by delirious dreams of glistening riches.
The Shining also pays homage to the historical railway station environment, soon to be redesigned. Golden, surprising and surreal things will be hidden amongst and interwoven with ageing wooden structures, rusting pillars, and old trees nearby... to create moments of wonder and fun for those who will look closely.

Inari Kiuru is an emerging multidisciplinary artist working with objects, images, jewellery and mixed media installation. She migrated from Finland to Australia in 1995, worked as a graphic designer and art director, and graduated with Honours in Fine Art (Object Based Practice) from RMIT University in 2013. Inari focuses on the hidden extraordinariness of seemingly unimportant, everyday subjects. Her current investigations include an ongoing series of photographs of discarded matter, and a body of objects and jewellery imagining the collision and convergence of industrial and organic forms through evolution.www.inarikiuru.blogspot.com
Initially trained and practiced as an interior designer, Nadine Treister has shifted her focuses towards the hand-made: A tactile, one-to-one relationship with her materials, to explore notions of line, form and composition on three-dimensional level. Nadine interchanges between making fine sculptural objects and intricate jewellery collections. Through her use of non-traditional materials and interplay of colour, Treister creates works that are both daring and delicate, bold and compelling, often with an underlaying playfulness in their outcome. Nadine holds a Bachelor of Arts (Honours), RMIT University and a Diploma of Engineering Technology, NMIT. Nadine was awarded the Australia Council ArtStart grant in 2013. www.nadinetreister.com
