Haunting

Haunting is a fascinating body of work that encompasses photography, video and text.

Demonstrating how objects and stories can be brought to life, this exhibition provokes various interpretations of the past and its ever unfolding consequences on the present. Vic McEwan, the National Museum’s 2015 artist-in-residence, created the large scale still photography and video works in Haunting, in collaboration with curator George Main. In projecting images of museum objects onto continually changing natural elements such as water, fog and smoke, McEwan has made the environment an active participant in his interpretation of agricultural history and its objects.

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

Haunting is a travelling exhibition developed by The Cad Factory and the National Museum of Australia.
