Joshua Searle

Museo del Oro Robado (Museum of Stolen Gold)

Searle examines and unpacks Pre-Columbian artefacts held in museum collections encountered through texts, as a means to further understand his own diasporic history and identity as an Australian-Colombian. An installation of paintings exploring practices of institutional collecting and impact of colonisation, Searle undertakes a process of reclamation of his own identity as part of the colonial diaspora, and of the works themselves.

Proudly supported by Frankston City Council’s Artist Project Grant program.
