THE 2019 Wearable Art Mandurah Showcase is no ordinary art exhibition.

Contemporary Art Spaces Mandurah is showcasing 24 garments, including 13 award-winning entries, made from various abstract materials.

Artists have used repurposed materials such as grey plastic bags, used dress patterns, reticulation pipe, old x-rays and discarded sanity masks to create wearable artworks.

Five garments are paired with audio headsets and tactile boards, giving people the opportunity to feel the materials each artist has used. The experience even includes hearing from others who have seen the exhibition.

Bertram artist Jacq Chorlton was named Wearable Art Mandurah Artist of the Year for the second year running with her garment I’ll Etait Une Fois.
