Liminal Dreams is an exhibition of Australian artists and designers considering the concept of liminality and straddling the space between the dream state and real state to contemplate the world that they want and how we might transition to this. On show are a collection of design objects that respond to Liminal Dreams with designs emblematic of each contributors practice. Throughout the exhibition Origine’s collection of furniture, lighting, rugs and objects, sourced from around the world remain on show.


Scotty Bemelen, Bieëmele (VIC)

Bieëmele is the artistic expression of maker and crafter Scotty Bemelen. Creating bespoke objects from natural materials in a truly unique format, Scotty’s practice is led by materiality and narrative while exploring the intersection of art and functionality.

Locki Humphrey (VIC)

Locki is a furniture designer and 3D artist, based in Melbourne (Naarm/Birrarung-ga) whose work spans both physical and digital mediums. Locki’s work re-interprets traditional forms and methods for a modern audience, with clean silhouettes that are dramatic and playful in proportion. With a particular focus on minimal intervention and sustainable design practices, Locki believes that good design should intentionally and carefully walk the line between beauty and function.

Nathan Martin, Saturday Yard Work (SA)

SATURDAY YARD WORK by Nathan Martin, based in Adelaide on Kaurna Country, is a practice that aims to find a medium between sculpture, craft, and functional objects, through experimentation of material and processes. Nathan looks to unorthodox methods of production and through this, seeks to find surprising visual and sensory results displayed through form and texture. In the creation of one-off pieces, Nathan’s experimental and process-led design approach aims to celebrate the offbeat, the ugly, and all nuances of hand produced objects.

Studio Flek (QLD)

Founded by Lisa Miller and Chris Miller, Studio Flek is a process driven design studio based on Kombumerri Land, in the Yugambeh region [Gold Coast]. Lisa and Chris redefine beauty by meticulously crafting furniture, lighting and design objects from discarded materials, embracing the unique character of leftovers and scrap. Their commitment to sustainable elegance transforms the overlooked into statement pieces, embodying a conscious approach to design.

Christopher Jewitt (VIC)

Christopher Jewitt is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Melbourne (Naarm/Birrarung-ga). Portraying subject matter in a playful manner between abstract and figurative, Christopher’s work is peppered with visual narratives of tragedy or celebration. His work express his interest in everyday objects in a tempest of colour and marks. (These) objects are drawn one on top of the other until roguish figurations take on a tactile and whimsical appearance, allowing for multiple angles of sense making.

Astrid Mulder (VIC)

Astrid Mulder’s interdisciplinary practice encompasses performance, video, and installation, focusing on our perception and interaction with the world through the body. She investigates the navigation of physical and psychological landscapes, guiding transitions between real and imaginative realms while exploring the boundary between the tangible and the fantastical.
