Details of 'ARCHIVUM'

There are a number of threads of...I hesitate to describe them as meanings...perhaps threads of associations within the works on display at the Webb Gallery...but the most significant connection for me is that within the space I am simply archiving my own work...each of the object related works is being consigned a registration number, described and catalogued before being placed in an archival box that is made for each of the objects within the gallery space. I spent a number of years doing this as part of my employment with the Mackay regional gallery in cataloging their wonderful artist book collection. I imagine it will require more then the remaining five days of the exhibition but the archiving of ones own work is like consigning things to their rightful place...like memory...delivered to the past where things float between the familiar and the near forgotten.
