Neville Gabie in residence at IASKA
Wide Eyed and Legless, 2006
In advance of his stay, Neville sent a fax to ask for gifts of clothing from the town residents appropriate to the local climate, these became his uniform whilst working in Kellerberrin, they also serve to portray the people and landscape of this place. Other works made in Australia include vetiginous digital films of the land shot by cameras attached to kites. These films include fragments of conversations with a farmer, an elder and a geologist, all with specific connections to this place.
The results of this exchange were shown in back-to-back exhibitions in 2008 at Canterbury Royal Museum and Art Gallery.
