Paper: 'Cerberus', Susan Flavell, 2013

Paper, Cotton, Leather, Flowers, Wood was co-curated with Kara Pinakis for FORM, to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Midland Atelier, an art and design studio hub occupying a cluster of buildings in the former Midland Railway Workshops (the southern hemisphere's most significant collection of Edwardian industrial buildings).

A group of artists with links to the Midland region were each allocated a site within the workshops to respond to, and one of the first five traditional anniversary gifts as their theme. The artists are all known for their innovative use of the material in question, drawing attention to the site's century-long history of hand-skilled labour.

Susan Flavell's Cerberus was created from cardboard for the site's former Foundry as the Paper component of the exhibition.
