In Giro – a Design & Other project by Cameron Lofthouse & Monica Placella
Design & Other are proud to announce their debut Australian exhibition, In Giro, a collection of limited edition silkscreen prints showing at Perimeter Books in Thornbury.
Created during their residency at Amsterdams Grafisch Atelier (AGA) in the Dutch capital during late 2011, the bold, vibrantly coloured works trace a 17-month period of travel through Asia and Europe.
Whether capturing the spectacle of the aurora borealis in Reykjavik or uncanniness of wandering carpet-lined streets in Istanbul, each of these works draw on two distinctly personal recollections of place and experience, engaging in notions of the keepsake or souvenir and exploring how memory can be articulated via creative process.

Design & Other is a creative partnership between Melbourne-based designers Cameron Lofthouse and Monica Placella. Founded in 2009, the ongoing project places an emphasis on independence, fluidity and collaboration and has seen Lofthouse and Placella complete a wide span of projects both locally and abroad. Their work merges computer-based and handmade design processes and investigates the interface between art and design practice.
