Summary of Project:

“The making of this work has hinged on a series of visits to a single place and a process of co-authorship: an openness to what as been offered up at each visit. Grafton Gully has been a food basket, a burial ground, and a major highway. Drilling back into the timeline of this place reveals a series of excavations, modifications, transgressions and re-purposing. In this place I am at once observer and catalyst, forager and witness. The animistic magnetism of the objects themselves, synchronicity, these elements are at play in these exchanges. A second layer of co-authoring occurs when the objects are re-visioned and re-presented.  The catalogue contains images and video from the exhibition as well as works made earlier in the project. The virtual book provides some insight into the provenance of the objects and the ways in which they orbit and intersect each other.”  Becky Nunes
