‘Dust' : An Exhibition about Insects, Collections and Heritage Buildings - Woodford Academy
‘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.
