Continuing on from yesterday's post where you were given the opportunity to watch some video artist diaries which are associated with an exhibition presently being held at the Victoria Gallery, State Library of Victoria. Each video is only about 3 minutes long.
The exhibition The Handmade Universe: from craft to code and the spaces between celebrates the rewards of making and the limitless scope it offers for invention and enquiry.1
First meet Donna Kendrigan who creates a whole other world through stop motion animation.
Next up is visual artist Atong Atem who engages in multiple mediums of photographs, film, painting, drawing, writing - producing portraits and self portraits through exploring the possibilities of texture and colour especially to create a narrative about her own South Sudanese history and art culture.
Deanna Hitti works with cyanotype which is one of the oldest photographic printing processes in the history of photography. Deanna, who is Melbourne based makes her own books - hand printed, hand sewen. Quite remarkable.
And finally we get to learn a little more about Sans facon - an art practice made up of two people - Tristan Surtees and Charles Blanc - both orginally from Glasgow but now living and working in Calgary, Canada. The work of Sans facon explores how people relate to place.
The exhibition (at the Victoria Gallery in the State Library of Victoria) is on until 6pm on 26 February 2023 and is free entry. No booking is required and there is wheelchair access.
