Congratulations to Artereal artist Glen Henderson, whose collaborative video project Fairweather is currently being exhibited at Tarrawarra Museum of Art.

The work is being shown as part of the Museum's exhibition Ian Fairweather: The Drunken Buddha - an exhibition which features all of the available works from Ian Fairweather’s The Drunken Buddha series for the first time in almost 50 years, providing the public with a rare opportunity to see these compelling paintings.

To support this exhibition, Tarrawarra Museum of Art will be exhibiting various segments of Fairweather - a collaboration by Miles Franklin Award-winning author Rodney Hall, video-artist Glen Henderson, and composer Erik Griswold which explores the remarkable life, work, and psychology of artist Ian Fairweather. Starting from his early years in Scotland and his experiences as a soldier in World War I, Fairweather traces the artist's myriad travels throughout the Asia-Pacific, his life changing journey aboard a home-made raft, and his final years in a dilapidated shack on Bribie Island.

Scored for string quartet and koto virtuoso Satsuki Odamura, with Rodney Hall himself as narrator, Fairweather is a collage of music, text and image that mirrors the intricate, textured layers of Fairweather's paintings.

Ian Fairweather: The Drunken Buddha can be seen at Tarrawarra Museum of Art until 15 March, 2015.
