Historical Remnants

Olga Cironis, Kevin Robertson, Toni Wilkinson, Tony Windberg, Jo Darbyshire, Sine MacPherson, Mark Tweedie

A group exhibition that reflects on the way we memorialise specific sites and monuments; and how they act to preserve and manipulate remembrance—enshrining landscapes, places, objects and markers into our collective memories. From the symbolism of the unique terrain of the Gallipoli escarpment in Tony Windberg’s paintings, instantly recognisable to many Australians and New Zealanders; to the depictions by Sine MacPherson of shrines along the roadside that serve to immortalise other people’s histories; to the representation of multiple layers of past events in the found objects of military fabrics, hair, medals and weaponry put to new use by Olga Cironis—the very personal act of commemorating imbues the inanimate with a life of its own, inserting them into the history.
