Fantastical Modern Cabinets by Trent Jansen from Gallery ALL
Broached Monsters explores two folkloric tales of Indigenous and European mythological creatures in these modern cabinets. The Hairy Wild Man From Botany Bay and Pankalangu. Fear of these creatures and what lurked in the unknown fathoms of the Australian bushland became a point of cultural confluence for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
Trent Jansen is a designer based in Thirroul, Australia, and Lecturer at the University of New South Wales Art & Design, Sydney Australia. Trent also lectures and holds workshops at various educational institutions in Australia and abroad. Are you excited to see his modern cabinets?
“Trent has a great deal of respect for cultural heritage and is extraordinarily thorough in incorporating cultural identity and history into his works … his collaboration with Broached Commissions has the same kind of take on defining the Australian design identity as Droog has done for the Dutch design identity”
says Marcel Wanders.
After a period working under Marcel Wanders in Amsterdam, Trent returned to Australia to set up a modern design studio in Sydney, before moving his practice to Thirroul on the New South Wales South Coast. This is where all his creativity started and these modern cabinets started to emerge.
