Leigh Hobba: the space of presence


Malpas, J and Holmes, JH, Leigh Hobba: the space of presence, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Hobart, pp. 64. ISBN 0-9775334-3-3 (2007) [Authored Research Book]


Leigh Hobba - The Space of Presence is the first major survey exhibition of one of Australia's most highly regarded video and performance, installation and sound artists. Employing the rich thematic arc of Tasmanian landscapes in video and sound, the works... reveal many of Hobba's themes and practices - a wry humour; politics; collaboration; and the potential of video from its archaeology into the future, and as a medium for the exploration of sound in nature. From his earliest works, Hobba has made art about and from the earth. Where does sound come from? And how does sound become music? ...Music as an inspiration, and its indinite sequences and structures are other vital elements of this exhibition.
