un•nat•u•ral Acts – a contemporary jewellery project. Unnatural Tendencies – new & collaborative work by Lauren Simeoni & Melinda Young

Lauren Simeoni and Melinda Young have been working together on their ‘unnatural’ contemporary jewellery project since 2008. United by a love of frippery and fakery and a shared aesthetic sensibility, Unnatural Tendencies at Studio 20/17 is the latest incarnation of Simeoni and Young’s collaboration
and marks the fourth anniversary of their first exhibition together under the ‘unnatural’ moniker.

For Unnatural Acts, Simeoni and Young invited eight other Australian jewellers to join their project; Anna Davern, Caz Guiney, Kath Inglis, Bridget Kennedy, Peta Kruger, Sim Luttin, Natalia Milosz-Piekarska and Mark Vaarwerk.
Each jeweller was sent a bag of the same materials to respond to or work with. They have in turn brought their own individual styles, unique responses to materials and the rich conceptual underpinnings in their practices to the project.
