On display in Object Space from 26 March to 27 May 2020 is the exhibition In the Fire Zone: How to Cook a Knife by Dianne Beevers.

Following an Australian summer dominated by bushfires, Dianne Beevers’ HOW TO COOK A KNIFE reminds us that fire is still a valuable element. Both cooking and knifemaking share the medium of fire, a love of tools, and the food produced by both.

As part of her speculative design practice, Dianne reflects on what might happen if people learnt how to make their own domestic tools; the knife, fork, spoon, chopsticks, bowl and drinking vessels. This exhibition reveals her first accomplishments in knifemaking, two Damascus kitchen knives that are the outcome of two weekend workshops led by blacksmith, Nick Hackett.

Object Space is a window gallery located in the window of the ADC Offices on William Street in Darlinghurst. The exhibition space has direct street frontage, is accessible to view 24 hours a day and is lit for viewing at night.
