"The Gaze of Hope"
Robin Hely
Curated by: Kim Brockett

Opening: Tuesday 16 August, 6-8pm
Dates: 16 August-3 September 2011

My name is Robin and I possess a divinely magnificent gift that defies scientific understanding and human comprehension. If you believe in my gift I can help you in ways that you would never imagine possible. This video shows some documentation of what I do. I hope you like it and I hope you can feel the power of my gaze even through this diluted medium. Peace and infinite love to you all.

Robin Hely has had a checkered career as an artist working mainly in the medium of deception. The last decade has seen him masquerading as a missing person, attempting to deliver large unwieldy packages to unknown recipients in Oporto Portugal, filling up Conical gallery with cardboard boxes, building illegal sculptures in downtown Melbourne, going on blind dates wearing a hidden cameras and setting up secret underground organizations dedicated to altering the perceptions of their participants. Hely was born on a sheep farm somewhere in New Zealand and purchased a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography on the internet during 1993. After traversing the globe and learning the trade of a fine artist he returned to New Zealand to study. Following the erection of two billboards in conjunction with a spurious advertising campaign he was awarded a Masters in Fine Arts with distinction. Hely now resides somewhere in Victoria and believes that he can heal people with the power of His Gaze.
