Looped opens in the Dome
State Library Victoria blog
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.
Chime and croak, sniff and purr, Olive, Lenni, Lottie, Misha, Frank, a singing canary named Tim, Rainbow lorikeets, and the possums, Ring and Brush, too. A safe and happy New Year from all of us here to all of you there.
Tiny Tap, a moving collage, in something of a growing tradition, created especially for Milly Sleeping's October month of SHOE project on instagram. 50 looped frames and fireflies to make Pietro Longhi's Portrait of a Venetian Family with a Manservant Serving Coffee, c. 1752, tappity-tap.
