Tales from the Fogg – My Life and Loves

TYPE: EXHIBITION

WHEN: 6-9pm 14 Mar 2013 – 1 Apr 2013

COST: FREE

by Roger Foley-Fogg

Internationally exhibiting artist, sculptor, futurist, social entrepreneur, psychedelic explorer and creative mastermind: Ellis D Fogg is many things, but one thing ties them all together: light. Since the 60s, Roger Foley (aka Ellis D Fogg) has been weaving energy into dreams through his lumino kinetic sculptures.

From the Mandalas of India to the façade of the MCA, Fogg’s creations of light have helped him make his illuminated mark across the world and across the consciousness of a generation of dreamers.

As you would expect from a creator and artist, many things have built up over the years – not only incredible connections and a huge sense of community, but a whole array of trinkets and historically significant art and objects, all for sale.

In a bizarre bazaar of the strangest type: art, posters, odd objects, books, costumes and films from the legacy of Ellis D Fogg will be simultaneously exhibited and sold from Friday March 15 to Easter Monday April 1 at 107. See costumes and fancy dress from Madam Lash, including the Gownless evening Strap and her famous Mink Coat and from Linda Jackson a selection of fluorescent chidrens wear, shoes and the brand new never worn Fuscia Skirt.

If you’re not looking to buy, come take part in the experience with a host of performing partners and friends who have been a part of the Fogg experience since way back when.
