Residency in France - 2007

During a trip to France in 2006, Lloyd Godman was invited to undertake an environmental artist in Residency at L'Arbre de Vie / Chateau de Blacons, Blacons, Drome Valley, France in 2007. Once a year the Château invite an international artist to work for a month or so in the grounds of the Chateau, with an exhibition to follow.

Lloyd completed three separate but related works for the exhibition. One of these was another version of the Carbon Obscura work exhibited at Montsalvat, as part of Structure Space, and Place, Installations in Nillumbik, curated by Tony Trembath and supported by the Nillumbik Sire Council

This involved darkening and enclosed space and creating landscape images by piercing the covering with a pin to let the sunlight penetrate the space. As the audience step into the space they triggered a fog generator where the rays of sunlight materialized in an intriguing manner that has captivated the audience.

However, where as the design in the work at Montsalvat covered only the walls, the work at the Chateau was larger and the landscape design produced from piercing thousands of tiny pinholes in an opaque covering covered the roof and walls.

Like the Monsalvat work, the reaction has been fantastic with many of the audience returning many times to view the work under varying light conditions. People of all ages and backgrounds respond to the work in the most delightful manner.

The other components of the exhibition included: a light projection work and a series of 37 original cyanotypes.

Lloyd has just completed the residency with the exhibition, which runs till 21 Oct, opening on Sat 15 Sept.

Sculpture exhibition - This is a work where I'm blacking out the entire space of the greenhouse with sheets of carbon paper and making images that project onto vapor via thousands of tiny pinholes - its like making thousands of tiny pinhole cameras -
