Looped, into infinity

Our exhibition, Looped, loops into infinity. Hurrah!

Our stone cats and a netsuke mouse have been minding their Ps and Qs since August 2017, and we are delighted that our #GraciaLouiseLooped inhabitants, like those within A warmed pebble in my hand, are staying in the dome dais indefinitely.

Thank-you State Library Victoria.

The Dome was already one of the most beautiful rooms in Melbourne and now it’s even more so. Looped: artist books in the round, our new display by artists Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, opened on 4 August in the La Trobe Reading Room. Gracia and Louise have turned the cabinet cases around the Reading Room’s dais into pages in a story. They’ve created five artist books that, through collage and the written word, tell a complete tale. It’ll be on display in the La Trobe Reading Room until 26 November. To celebrate the display, Gracia and Louise took over our Instagram account on 4 August to introduce themselves and share their work.

Installing Looped in the La Trobe Reading Room, SLV, early in the morning

Looped, in the La Trobe Reading Room

We have turned State Library Victoria's dais in the heart of the Dome Reading Room into an artists' book. Not a book you hold in your palm, but a book that you walk around. One foot, after the other — left, right, left, right — turning the cabinet pages with your feet.

Treating each cabinet as a page, we are exhibiting five new artists' books upon large-scale collages, weaving a fable beneath glass.

Looped
4th August – 26th November, 2017

'It was familiar. Yet it was out of sorts. It was a left foot crammed into the right shoe.'

From the 4th of August, we are turning State Library Victoria's dais in the heart of the Dome Reading Room into an artists' book. Not a book you hold in your palm, but a book that you walk around. One foot, after the other — left, right, left, right — turning the cabinet pages with your feet.

Treating each cabinet as a page, we will be exhibiting five new artists' books, including I think all the world is falling, and No longer six feet under, upon large-scale collages, weaving a fable beneath glass.  Come and see.

'I think all the world has fallen. And it was long ago.'

Come and see.
