该项目的创作契机源于二人在Fremantle艺术中心举办的“In Cahoots”展览上的相识。Trent和Johnny自2017年开始单独合作,并将皮革作为他们的“实验”对象。两位设计师在皮具方面均有着丰富的经验,此次的“皮肤”系列展示了二人长期以来的研究成果和他们对皮革的不同理解,同时也将使观者了解到皮革这一材料所蕴含的创新潜力。

Johnny and Trent began to collaborate in isolation, experimenting with leather, a material that has been formative in the working lives of both designers. Johnny worked as a saddler on cattle stations in the Kimberley region, using traditional techniques to cut, stamp and form leather. Trent has experimented extensively with animal pelts, using industrial precision to generate forms that emulate Australian mythical creatures. This collaborative journey gave Johnny and Trent a glimpse into the potential for innovation in sharing their disparate understandings of leather, and both designers are compelled to push these early studies further.
