Intimate Journals Exhibition
The photographic series Intimate Journals and limited edition book Artist’s Library evolved from artist Anne Ferran's time spent exploring the special character of the Boyd's library at Bundanon Homestead.
In Arthur and Yvonne Boyd’s personal library, books share the shelves with works of art. The natural world outside conditions the atmosphere, as if the library contents were breathing in the air exhaled by rocks, leaves and trees. The photographic series Intimate Journals and limited edition book Artist’s Library evolved from time spent exploring the special character of this library. The photographs have been shaped by, among other things, the idea of a connective tissue linking writing and landscape and a powerful attraction to particular titles and texts.
The exhibition is located in the Upstairs Library at Bundanon Homestead. Visitors can tour the homestead and experience the unique collection of Boyd family work, as well as Arthur Boyd’s studio and the homestead grounds.
