Kurtis Adamson

Dear memo-ry, please dont forget me

Informed by media archaeology and archival theory, Kurtis Adamson utilises discarded photographic negatives from the early 1900s to explore the relationship between analogue and digital media, and the changing perceptions around photographic archives. His hauntological inspired archive alludes to the social spectral concerns of digital data collection & identification, whilst also exploring a link between memory and objecthood which digital photography rarely evokes. Dear memo – ry, please don't forget me… aims to provide reflection and encourage contemplation of the digital age we live in as we increasingly create a digital legacy for future generations. 

James Murnane

Ever Ancient, Ever New

Tentatively, I unlatch my front gate, chocking it open with a stone. A little fearfully, I leave my front door wide, and screen door unlocked. The table set, old wine is left to breathe, and fresh bread to cool for all to take, ignore, or savour.

Initially undertaken as an outdoor site-specific installation upon the ruins of the 13th century Church of the Cross (Korskirken), May 2016 in Oslo, Norway, Ever ancient, ever new explores the effects of an openness to vulnerability, and its capacity to induce harm, humility, and healing. 

James Murnane is a visual artist living and working in Melbourne, Australia.
