Small Space will be hosting local jeweller 'Jin Ah Jo' as part of the 2021 Radiant Pavilion program.

JIN AH JO is a contemporary jewellery artist from Melbourne. For her, making jewellery is all about creating wearable unpredicted forms reflecting her cross-cultural experience of immigrating from Korea to Australia. She finished a Masters of Fine Art at Monash University in 2008 including study at Fachhochschule Düsseldorf, Germany in 2006. In 2015 she participated in LOOT at the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC and had a solo show, Ohmaebulmang at e.g.etal in 2016. For the last couple of years blog writing her journey of making also became a significant part of her practice.

This project for Radiant Pavilion combines blog writing and a window exhibition. Jin ah Jo has been blogging, ‘Craft habit 100/100 Volume Two: My LaLa Land‘ on her website from March to August 2021. The blog documents the process of making one wearable object every day for 100 days. It captures the inspiration, stories, thoughts, and insights behind the work in two languages, English and Korean. The project will celebrate completion with a window exhibition at Small Space Jewellery Gallery. Both her blog and window display will be open to the public 24 hours a day.

The exhibition will be visible from 2nd September until the 21st September.
All pieces are for sale but will not be removed from the window display until the 22nd September when they will be available for collection or posted out.





Radiant Pavilion is a celebration of the many aspects of contemporary jewellery and object practice. It draws on a strong local community and reaches out to the international field to create a southern focal point for the art form.

Featuring over 200 local and international artists and more than 50 events, the 2021 Radiant Pavilion program is testament to the tenacity and creativity of makers across the contemporary jewellery and object field.

The projects explore a wide range of themes, from the digital to the domestic, the geological to geopolitical. Collectively, they reveal a community that, far from being on its knees, has honed its skills, found new ways to connect and collaborate and forged a deeply considered engagement with, and expression of, our human experience in this moment.
