In an age where we must downsize, strip back, live closer together, make do and find pleasure in the essential, where is there room for our desire to decorate; to be surrounded by useless objects that visually please us? Personal item explores the threshold between luxury and necessity, between desirability and functionality. It is a VIP rope for your exclusive (non-)use and enjoyment; a function-ful form where function is optional.
MANY MANY is the creative practice of Stephanie Poole (CH) and Rachel Elliot-Jones (AUS) – an itinerant curatorial and publishing platform concerned with rituals of making and interdisciplinary design. MANY MANY publishes HOUSE WEAR, an occasional publication about nomadic culture, across art, design, architecture and writing.
