Soft Sculpture with David Spooner + Gulnoza Akhmedova

Snack Pop-up

17 August 2023

Join us for our next edition of Snack, featuring the soft sculptures of David Spooner and Gulnoza Akhmedova.

Embracing queer, grunge and D.I.Y aesthetics, artist David Spooner creates soft sculptures and other handmade art objects from familiar domestic craft materials. They also have a concurrent practice of drawing everyday and publishing it on the world wide web (social media). Shop Spooner’s new series of snake necklaces, door snakes, and desk snails.

Gulnoza Akhmedova is a contemporary fibre artist, specialising in amigurumi. Her playful creations often feature Australian birdlife and other whimsical characters. Gulnoza has been crafting since childhood and is interested in the capacity of domestic crafts as tools for storytelling and connection.

Meet the artists, enjoy a free drink, and be the first to shop a new selection of unique handmade products.

Snack is a pop-up concept store within the Gallery Shop designed to platform functional, affordable products made by emerging artists. Be the first to view and purchase new and exciting products and get a chance to meet these talented makers.
