"Wraith" open in Melbourne

Just a quick post to let you know that the install went fine and the show opened last Friday night at Kings ARI, Level 1, 171 King St Melbourne. Here are a few photos taken on the Thursday night when I was finishing up. You can't see the anatomical drawings here, they are covered by the clay. They will appear later as the clay dries and falls from the wall.

Where's my header gone?

My header has disappeared off my blog! Has this happened to anyone else? Do you know what's happening?

Anatomy of an Installation

When I go into the gallery next week, the first step will be to put up the projection and make sure it is "located" as I want within the space. Once that is done I can work out exactly where on the wall the clay figure is to go.

The next step is to transfer these anatomical drawings onto the wall. I am printing them out on Canon Glossy photo paper and will use white gesso as the transfer medium. Then I will leave them to dry, probably over night - both to be sure it's all secure on the wall and secondly to break up the process and try to preserve my energy.

Here are two of the drawings as they are, ready to be printed out. They were originally hand-drawn for the first exhibition of this work here in Brisbane, but I have been re-working them using the graphics tablet over the past week.
