Art Axis

I've been absent from posting online for the past 6-weeks. Not for lack of work, but because I wanted time to focus solely on planning my time for 2018. It'll be a big one.

For right now, I'm happy to announce that i'm the latest member of Art Axis: an independent, international network of ceramic artists. If you'd like to view my page and visit a really great database of currently practicing ceramic artist's, head here: https://artaxis.org/dan-elborne/

Follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter if you want a drip-feed of exciting work from all over the world.

More news soon and I'll soon get back to some kind of schedule for posting on Instagram.


Art of Research

I'm currently in Helsinki, Finland, where I'll be presenting this week at the Art of Research 2017 conference at Aalto University. My presentation will be focussed on my current Deathgate project (both my ongoing writing about it and its physical production).

To accompany the conference, I'll also be part of an exhibition in the Dipoli Gallery of Aalto University. There, I'll be exhibiting a small portion of the Deathgate project. This is for added context to my presentation, and hopefully some productive discussion about the work. To be exact, I'm showing 0.1% of the project (1,300 handmade ceramic 'stones').

BLOOD: London season

My work One Drop of Blood is now showing in London as part of their Science Gallery exhibition titled BLOOD: Life Uncut. This is a follow up to the work recently showing at the Science Gallery Melbourne. You can see the group exhibition from October 12th to November 1st at the Copeland Gallery in Peckham. 


Weekdays: 12noon-8pm

Weekends: 10am-6pm


Copeland Gallery, Unit 9I, 133 Copeland Rd, London SE15 3SN

For this showing of the work, One Drop of Blood is partnered with Bloodwise UK.  All money raised in London will go toward their research into blood related cancer. 

Special thanks goes to: Revecka Carnes, Lizzie Crouch, Bella Frobel, Emma Lamb, Gigi Panopoulos, Jennie Toy, Eileen Truong, Kylie White, Robyn Wilson and Laura Woodward, for their assistance in 'replenishing the white blood cell count' by 1,993 cells during a workshop of mine at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) in Melbourne. This replenishment was organized through the Science Gallery Melbourne as part of the touring BLOOD exhibition.
