ANVAM Exhibition

My new version of this work, Five Hundred is currently showing as part of the inaugural exhibition for the Australia National Veterans Arts Museum (ANVAM) in Melbourne. The show is based on the theme of veteran identity and can be seen at 278 Collins Street Melbourne from 10AM - 5PM between March 22nd and April 25th.

I originally created Five Hundred in 2012-13, but have since re-visited and remade the entire series to incorporate better serving and appropriate imagery. This is the first time my 2016 version of the project has been shown to the public and it's an honour to be included in the exhibition. To read about the project specifically, you can find it under the 'work' tab or here.

I continue to be slack with updating this news page, but the best place to keep in touch with my current projects, exhibitions and movements is through Instagram @danelborne

Again, it's been a long while since my last post. Since mid January i've doubled my production of the current main project, Deathgate, which has come at the cost of any kind of online presence. With the 'making' of that work, I have given myself weekly quotas from now until November 2018 (when I plan to complete the work). The doubling of this workload is in order to get 2 months ahead of schedule by the beginning of May, when I will be heading to a 6-weeks artist residency in Onishi, Japan.

I've also been finalising the details and logistics of some exciting exhibitions i'm taking part in this year. Stay tuned for details on shows including my work at the Australian National Veterans Arts Museum and the Science Gallery Melbourne. I've updated my CV with other forthcoming exhibitions if you're interested.

For right now though, and as has been the case since March 2016: most of my studio time will be spent "making rocks."

Old News, New Year

It's been a while since my last post, which isn't from lack of news. I've been off the radar for the past while working as one of the lead artists on the opening and closing ceremony (the Fire Event) of the Woodford Folk Festival. An intensive job but a break from the norm.

I've now come back to the studio in a fresh 2017 to continue work on my main project and get started on some smaller works i've been considering for a while. 

The biggest piece of news from late last year is i've been published in the current issue of the Journal of Australian Ceramics. This issue features a Q&A article with me answering questions about my major project, Death Gate.
