Virtual Memory Walks

Abstract

Simon Woollham undertook a virtual memory walk with each artist. Using Google Earth and Skype, and starting at the home where the artist grew up, Woolham journeyed through time and space, guided by the memories that are drawn out and unfold. This online experience, utilised as a curatorial tool with the artists and presented as a series of videos, is an integral part of the presentation of the exhibition, unravelling and laying bare the autobiographical and artistic details around why these artists are working in a particular way. The process of the walk captures how these artists might dialogue and use memory as a catalyst for their work.
