Art books can be in a variety of ways – playbooks, comic books or, as a show, artistic and creative art. Presented by artists Avril Makula and Liz Jeneid, Place is a diverse series of books from 40 artists from NSW, ACT, Victoria and Queensland. There are custom-made books, concerts and built-in, animated and three-dimensional artwork. The theme of the show, Place, can be a real space or a imaginary space brought out by experience and emotion. As is the case with many modern scholars, a major environmental concern is a recurring theme. It seems that it is difficult to enjoy nature without the knowledge of its dangers – even if it is not explicitly stated by an artist, it has become part of the spectacle. Katharine Nix’s little hard work is called The Tree of Life. The look of the book, based on one side of the hexagon, asks that humans are better known by nature with the green leaves that emerge from the center, perhaps showing the life-giving and vital energy. Marama Warren’s book Migration (destination) follows the writing and recording of the migration of the godwit and its arrival on the NSW coast where the artist resides. His migration, announced by church bells in New Zealand, looks like a dangerous journey for this little bird. Mary Rosengren’s work for Bower 1 depicts Satin Bowerbird. The pages of his famous book are carefully cut to match the branches that the bird collects and the book is accompanied by a blue detritus of the plastic material that the bird takes to burn. While Rosengren’s work cleverly portrays the urban landscape where the bowerbird now inhabits it, some artists limit the spread of urban areas in a more straightforward manner. Robyn Foster Dreamscape’s mission is to build decorative and architectural pages based on the cover of this book as many urban events throughout the region. Penelope Lee in the invisible city remembers in her papers the original Canberra architect Marion Mahony and Walter Burley Griffin as the phimpsestest under the Canberra’s modern footprint. Lucia Parrella feels like she is somewhere else in writing her two works based on her experience on the Greek island of Cumae and the famous Sibyl.

Location: A moving exhibition of artist books. Canberra Museum + Photography. Until October 31, 2020.

Art books can be in a variety of ways – playbooks, comic books or, as a show, artistic and creative art. Presented by artists Avril Makula and Liz Jeneid, Place is a diverse series of books from 40 artists from NSW, ACT, Victoria and Queensland.

There are custom-made books, concerts and built-in, animated and three-dimensional artwork. The theme of the show, Place, can be a real space or a imaginary space brought out by experience and emotion.

As is the case with many modern scholars, a major environmental concern is a recurring theme. It seems that it is difficult to enjoy nature without the knowledge of its dangers – even if it is not explicitly stated by an artist, it has become part of the spectacle.

Katharine Nix’s little hard work is called The Tree of Life. The design of the book, based on one side of the hexagon, asks that the major human roles in nature have green leaves that protrude from the center, perhaps reflecting the life force and of vital importance.

Marama Warren’s book Migration (destination) follows the writing and recording of the migration of the godwit and its arrival on the NSW coast where the artist resides. His migration, announced by church bells in New Zealand, looks like a dangerous journey for this little bird.

The work of Mary Rosengren Bower 1 should not be shown on Satin Bowerbird. The pages of his famous book are carefully cut to match the branches that the bird collects and the book is accompanied by a blue detritus of the plastic material that the bird takes to burn. While Rosengren’s work cleverly portrays the urban landscape where the bowerbird now inhabits it, some artists limit the spread of urban areas in a more straightforward manner.

Robyn Foster Dreamscape’s mission is to build decorative and architectural pages based on the cover of this book as many urban events throughout the region.

Penelope Lee in the invisible city remembers in her papers the original Canberra architect Marion Mahony and Walter Burley Griffin as the phimpsestest under the Canberra’s modern footprint.
