Making of Royal Exhibition Building & Carlton Gardens
On Monday 19 August the Ballarat International Foto Biennale presented a live performance by Chinese contemporary artist Liu Bolin at the Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens in Melbourne. Liu Bolin’s images are not created with photomontage. They are created in the place where he camouflages himself. The creation of this new artwork in Melbourne involved six hours of careful staging of the scene, hyperrealist painting and then the final photograph was taken - all right there in front of the building. To see a beautiful videography of the day by Melbourne based artist Tim Hiller, please see the link attached and to find out more, come and see the exhibition!
