COLLECTORS ROOM…sounds important doesn’t it? WORLD have created this new space called COLLECTORS ROOM, which is filled with collections that have caught the WORLD team’s attention, or have made part of their aesthetic over the past 25 years. These collections and rare pieces are currently being enjoyed in an eclectic and luxurious environment, complementing the WORLD fashion collection downstairs.
Inside is a rare teak monkey sculpture, Vintage Thierry Mugler, Christian Dior and Missoni clothing, ceramic sculpture by Colin Melbourne and one of Arnold Machin’s most successful pieces for Wedgwood “Taurus, the Zodiac Bull”.
As you walk up the stairs, you are greeted by a swarm of butterflies and bugs in frames, then a flock of birds displaying their plumage and dancing for the audience…yes these birds are my taxidermy pieces. I am very honoured to be showing my work in amongst some well known and sought after collections.
Last week I took the time to visit the space and take some photos. I also invited Sait Akkirman from Artsdiary to come along as well. I have included one of his shots below, which will be used in an upcoming feature about me (soon to be revealed).
If you are looking for something special and different for your family or friends for Christmas (or just in general in case you are one of those people who loves giving presents to people), then you should definitely check out the COLLECTORS ROOM.
Upstairs, 97 Ponsonby Rd (enter through WORLD Ponsonby)
Opening hours Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 10am-5pm, Sunday 12noon – 4pm
