“What do you do with a broken crochet needle [hook] and a manic mother?” Artist Kevin Chin has enlisted his mum to crochet a giant structure to fill the main gallery in his new exhibition Ruined – showing at Kings ARI (Melbourne) opens on Friday 5th June, 6 – 8pm, and runs till 27th June.

The exhibition explores themes of cultural belonging and security, and indeed 400 loving hours of crochet later, what a mother will do for her children.

Doesn’t this make his mother the artist?
