“WOOD: art design architecture explores innovative and outstanding uses of wood in contemporary Australian art, design and architecture. It is the result of a collaboration between two iconic South Australian organisations, JamFactory and the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide. Before embarking on a two-year national tour, this groundbreaking exhibition will premiere in Adelaide across two venues: JamFactory and the Santos Museum of Economic Botany. The exhibition is supported by the Commonwealth Government’s Contemporary Touring Initiative and is principally sponsored by Wood. Naturally Better.”
Damien is the winner of the People’s Choice Award for most popular piece in the show.
