Archaeological Survey: Inner West Sydney Sector is a collaborative exhibition with Dr Bonita Ely at Articulate Project Space.
A survey of a headland on the Australian continent's central East Coast has revealed a sector designated, ‘Inner West Sydney’. Remnants of concrete pathways and structures buried by sediments, evidence of high levels of social activity in a densely populated settlement, categorise the site as ‘worthy of study’. The excavation reveals artifacts comprised of randomly dispersed, thin sheets of printed wood pulp. Analysis of this synchronic detritus discloses mundane communal, economic, intra and inter-personal human activities underling a matrix of esoteric hierarchies. The exhibition also features alumnus Luke Power’s Graphic art, the language of advertising, concepts around cultural events, memory, place, home, and belonging fragmented and arranged in collaged assemblages.
