In 2019 Warrnambool Art Gallery is delighted to present Haunting,
a projection, video and photographic exhibition developed by the
National Museum of Australia (NMA) in collaboration with Vic
McEwan (The Cad Factory) during his residency at NMA in 2015.
The exhibition features photographs and videos of museum objects
selected by the artist from the National Historical Collection that
embody the idea of changing natural forces (such as water, fog,
smoke and smoke) to explore the contested interpretations of
southern Australia’s agricultural history and narrative.
Severalobjects featured in Haunting were made or used by Wiradjuri people. The NMA and The Cad Factory worked closely with Wiradjuri elders to ensure presented objects were interpreted and displayed appropriately.
