Wearing Country

Two worlds united.

Maram Barerarerungar — Wearing Country symbolises the union of two extraordinary artistic communicators.

Arts & culture
  • Brand identity
  • Packaging
  • Communications

Maree Clarke explores the world’s museums for the ceremonial materials lost to her people through the intensive colonial occupation of the south east of Australia. Inspired by architecture and machines, Blanche Tilden is renowned as a passionate and knowledgeable creator of wearable glass jewellery, cognisant of the role this ancient material has played in the examination of otherness throughout history.”

Refined skills.

Envelope’s brand identity for this unique collaboration harmonises two distinct voices within a cohesive and flexible visual language. Hand drawn brush strokes contrast with technically precise geometry. Idiosyncratic typefaces embody each artist’s personal practice.

A catalogue combines Simon Anderson’s personal portraits of Maree’s relatives adorned with jewellery that is also expertly documented in photographs by Andrew Curtis’. Artist perspectives in their own words explain the story of this compelling collaboration.

Stories told differently…

Envelope’s deep understanding of each artist’s individual practice delivered a harmonious story. How could we help communicate your artistic practice?
