Ways of Approaching a Monument: movement #1 homing

6/10/13 – 3/11/13
Opening Sunday October 6th 6pm

Installed in Fontanelle Gallery 1 and 2 you will find dis-placed landmarks collected from, or recorded at, certain sites—my own backyard in the Adelaide Hills where the pigeons beat a regular path on my approach; curb side North Terrace, Adelaide (by the bus shelter) waiting; from the deck of a home in which I stayed as guest in Far North Queensland; on a series of walks around country England (vaguely following a “script” of conversation fragments gathered online: tracing the remains of medieval fortifications); cloistered in the collection rooms of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; and on the river bank at the far end of the Italian Gardens where the fountains spill endlessly into the Long Water of the Serpentine (in Kensington Palace Gardens). Each collected fragment indexes an on-going pre-occupation: an un-settled attempt to feel for the edges of “home.”
