THE 2013 GEORGES MORA FOUNDATION FELLOWSHIP WAS AWARDED TO THE COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP OF BROOK ANDREW & TRENT WALTER

 

Brook Andrew and Trent Walter: Dual/duel Artists’ books.

This project will simultaneously create and interrogate pictorial connections and explore the implications of these associations to form new narratives about how we explain the history they conjure. It will result in the creation of four large artists’ books that combine hand-printed and mechanical-reproduction printing techniques suitable for exhibition.

"The image collection of the State Library of Victoria will allow us to expand on the scope of research we have individually and collectively undertaken in the production of other projects to date. The breadth and depth of the collection allows new areas of research to be sourced and uncovered while developing new thinking relating to image discoveries and how this material can be displayed. It is our aim to re-order and juxtapose the way in which we usually ‘see’ images of humanity and to expose these new images to the public."   - Brook Andrew & Trent Walter

Brook Andrew challenges cultural and historical perception, using installation, text and image to comment on local and global issues regarding race, the media, consumerism and history. Apart from drawing inspiration from vernacular objects and institutional and found archive collections, Andrew travels internationally to work with communities and museum collections to comment and create new work relating to historical object display and perception. .

Brook Andrew is represented by Tolarno Galleries, Melbourne & Galerie Nathalie Obadia, Paris.
