    C3 Contemporary Art Space, The Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne. Forme Exhibition, 2010. Dye Sublimation Textile Print Design on Silk Chiffon and Giclee Pigment Fine Art Prints. Using the origins of the botanic, nature’s most proud ‘original’ moment, as a thematic starting point – Forme uses the design element of a pattern repeat to subvert our concept of the original by replacing it with a reproduction. Creating an image that sees the original as a continuing repeat of never ending reproducibility, Engelhardt refers to both natures’ inherent ability to reproduce in a biological sense and man’s desire to reproduce in a synthetic sense – the origin versus the artifice.
