HARRY ROBERTS, BELLE, June 26, 2020

'Partu', the Walmajarri word for 'skin', is the latest exhibition by designers Johnny Nargoodah and Trent Jansen to launch at Gallery Sally Dan Cuthbert. Their 18-month collaboration yielded a body of work that explores the confluence of their disparate sensibilities and skills in working with animal pelts – Johnny is a Nyikina man who has spent much of his life as a saddler on remote cattle stations and Trent is an avant-garde object designer. Made from salvaged scrap parts, the beaten geometry of these functional artworks tests the boundaries and beauty of leather.
