One of the most remarkable new establishments I’ve had the pleasure of setting both feet inside, the marvels of Melbourne’s Wunderkammer not withstanding, is The Magic Lantern.
Wall to wall oddities related to tricks and treats of an older age: magic, optical illusions, cardboard theatres, puppets – imagine a time before TV, before DVDs, before gaming, where amusement was only to be found in the head, on paper and in actions… these are the imaginative tools used to build a sense of the surreal, the infinite, the stuff of dreams. A magic lantern was itself a pre-20th century optical trick, the first projector, perhaps it could be said, so that pretty much infers the interest and scope of this store.
The Magic Lantern is replete with such weapons against a rainy day and a drab room, so grab some candle-lamps, don a frilly frock and take your imagination away with fairies, gypsies, devils, conjurers and the wonders of the play….
155 Brunswick St
Open from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
Hawthorn art gallery/shop/curio haven Kustom Lane are having an Art sale this weekend. That seems as good a reason as any to profile this mighty unique location, which brings together hotrods, tikis, lounge and gorelesque art, 50s horror schlock and more under one roof. Kustom Lane is a paen to all things kitschtastic, with an emphasis on rockabilly, psychobilly, horror and burlesque motifs.
They display work by local artists centred around these themes, and sell tikis, have gigs and hotrod related exhibitions… and much more.
Why not make this weekend your excuse to get down to Kustom Lane in Hawthorn and find out more? Oh and they also have an online art store.

I was privileged to meet Vali Myers not once but three times: Once at an exhibition of her work, once in her divine studio in the Nicholas Buiding, and once at Degraves Coffee, where she was a relatively frequent customer. Vali represented, and represents a unique vision as an artist, and as a woman – and a human – she had charisma, charm, vision and drive and never seemed afraid of the perception of others. She ran an animal sanctuary in Italy, romanced philosophers in Paris, and finally settled in Melbourne where she produced remarkable works of art for the remainder of her remarkable life. I can’t stress enough how worthwhile it would be to see the exhibition, the films and of course this new book on the wonderful Ms Myers. Info below.
