Intro
Catalogue of the exhibition with the same title. The exhibition unites the northern and southern hemispheres through the work of jewellery and object artists from Australia and Estonia. In each country statements were collected from ordinary members of the public about their knowledge and opinion of the other country.
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 and 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 a distant outsider’s perspective and the resulting realisations and revelations about our own identity.

The two cultures have been explored through unverified perceptions or 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.
