DVD: Why the Wind Blows, and Other Popular Delusions
This DVD chronicles the first large-scale exhibition of Lo Bue's work in Australia. Assembled here is a survey of twenty years of working
with found materials, encompassing jewelry, objects and eyewear. Many pieces are from the artist's own collection that have never before been exhibited.
Also displayed are several rarely-seen collaborative works with a range of distinguished artists: jewelers Robert Ebendorf and Marcia Macdonald, book artist Daniel Essig, paper artist & poet
Betty Oliver, embroiderer Jane Nicholas, glassblower Sally Prasch
and basketry pioneer Dorothy Gill Barnes.
The exhibition took place at Hervey Bay Regional Gallery on the beautiful Fraser Coast in Queensland in July 2010.
An atmospheric video takes you through the expansive space, showing intimate details of the work. This is followed by two talks presented during the opening: a thirty-minute address given by the artist on the gallery floor, and the official opening of the exhibition presented by internationally renowned Australian book artist Adele Outteridge.
Included in the booklet is a powerful and poetic essay written by pre-eminent Sydney sculptor Michael Buzacott.
