Mary Gilmore 3: Fog and Smoke, 2015

HAUNTING

Haunting is a body of photographic and video work made in response to dynamic environmental conditions, contested histories, and our negotiations of a complex future.
 

Vic McEwan created the large-scale works while artist-in-residence at the National Museum of Australia in 2015 and collaborated with Senior Curator George Main.
 

Experimenting with the idea of painting into the landscape, Vic and George projected images of historical objects and photographs onto a canvas of naturally occurring fog, water and smoke. By engaging with the
active materiality of place, they sought to examine human history and the consequences of past actions.

 

How do the meanings of these significant objects change when we allow uncontrollable natural elements to help produce the work?
