As part of Craft Victoria's new Emerging Makers and Curators Program, Slice of Life is a group exhibition that sees everyday objects and still life works reimagined with modern craft-based vitality. Eight up-and-coming artists will showcase their light-hearted works inventively across ceramics, textiles and jewellery. Curated by contemporary artist Sophia Cai, the works depict commonplace experiences and objects seen daily, highlighting the resourceful nature of the exhibition's artists who use unlikely materials and mediums to reinvigorate the still life genre of art.

The exhibition features some of Australia's most exciting newcomers, including Mechelle Bounpraseuth, Phil Ferguson (aka Chili Philly, the maker of wearable crochet art), Julie Burleigh, Scott Duncan, Katie Jacobs, Josephine Mead, Tricia Page, and Cat Rabbit. Slice of Life is on now at Craft Victoria and runs until May 27.
