Working across sculpture, painting and installation, my practice investigates a broad network of interests including display, psychology, archaeology and museology, as well as both personal and art historical narratives. The act of collecting lies at the heart of Retrieved: Re-imagined, where I have gathered together a series of found and bought objects as the point of departure. Driven by a deep engagement with industrial materials and fabrication processes, the work uses systems and curatorial strategies to reconsider and interpret new, multilayered pathways between forms. Through a series of actions and operations, such as stacking, casting and re-presenting, the materials are recontextualised in order to challenge their pre-existing framework and function, while enabling different perspectives and metaphorical associations to arise.
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the people of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
