'Dust': An Exhibition About Insects, Collections and Heritage Buildings

Archived 4 Nov 2018 - Posted: 6 Sep 2018
The last artistic event of the Academy’s 2018 program ‘Dust : An exhibition about insects, collections and heritage buildings’ opens on Saturday 15 September.

‘Dust’ brings together artists and museum professionals to explore the processes of collection care underway at the Blue Mountains oldest colonial buildings, the Woodford Academy.  

In an Australian first, the Academy buildings will be progressively wrapped and left to 'cook' over the coming summer, eradicating the infestation of insects that have taken up residence in the building and its collections.

‘Dust’ engages with the idea of collection care while at the same time examining the lives and activities of insects. Just like we do, insects seek the right conditions to thrive and grow; that they may nest in our precious memory-objects and spaces is of no consequence to them. Dust highlights the materiality of insect bodies, museum objects and heritage environments and gives expression to the productive and destructive forces inherent to human-insect relationships.  

Visual artists Erica Seccombe, Ingeborg Hansen, Freedom Wilson and writer, performer and  all-round ‘creatrix’ Cat Jones join Sydney University Museum’s Julie Taylor, Madeleine Snedden, Rachel Lawrence, Christopher Jones and Stuart Humphreys to present a suite of vibrant and fascinating audio and visual works that showcase the good, the bad and the ugly of the insect world.

Developed by local Blue Mountains artist Jacqueline Spedding in conversation with Elizabeth Burgess from the Woodford Academy, Dust celebrates the work of Spedding’s fellow artists and museum colleagues who have backgrounds in art and science, both professionally and creatively
