Following on from our previous article introducing the PET Lamp project, we were lucky enough to catch up with Alvaro as he was preparing for the upcoming NGV Triennial exhibition which will feature the PET Lamp collaboration with the Bula’bula artist weavers from Ramingining in the Northern Territory.
PET Lamp was invited by the National Gallery of Victoria to travel to Australia where they immersed themselves in the community at Ramingining in Australia’s north, working with eight indigenous artist weavers to create stunning circular lampshades using traditional local techniques.
