The RE:Location Project began with an overseas journey to Ireland, Scotland and England in 2015 to visit the lands of my ancestors who emigrated to Australia in the 1880s. I placed ten little ‘Art Pods’ containing my own artworks into the places they had lived before migrating to Australia, and this emotional experience triggered the ideas and content for this exhibition.
The artwork has evolved into three parts
DIGITALLY MASTERED PIGMENT PRINTS on metal substrate
SCULPTURES of wood, resin and metal
ACRYLIC PAINTINGS on canvas and synthetic paper
The seabirds represent the migration, while the sculpture alludes to the settlement and the landscape paintings refer to the legacy of this island continent that I to call home. Important aspects of the proposed exhibition will include documentation offered as a video, book and catalogue and this will incorporate information from the overseas component.
An interactive element, depending on the interest of participating galleries, would involve the positioning of Art Pods in the local outdoor environment, to be found by gallery visitors.
A PDF of the exhibition concept, with images of the artwork, is available on request.
