26 Original Fakes exhibition organised by Dale Hardiman & Tom Skeehan
Description of work:
Parcel from the Australian Government to Jasper Morrison with replica royalties for his hard work.
This work raises simple question: Should it be legal to copy anything in Australia providing it is called 'replica'?
Designed by Stuart Devlin AO and introduced in 1984, the One Dollar Coin with 'Five Kangaroos' is one of Australia's most iconic symbols of currency.
Devlin, whom was also a furniture designer, is one of the most significant designers of our time. He has designed coins for 30 other countries (including a UK £1 coin), Australia's Decimal Coins and was appointed as Goldsmith and Jeweler to the Queen in 1982.*
