Art // Holtermann Projections
In April 2016 I spent a month as an artist in residence at Haefligers Cottage in Hill End. During this residency I began a series called The Holtermann Projections where I projected photographs sourced from the NSW State Library's Holtermann Collection, back into the town as it appears today. The Holtermann Collection is a priceless record of gold mining towns recorded in the 1870's. My curiousity was about whether I could effectively layer contemporary scenes of Hill End with its visual memory.
This series will be exhibited by the Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) in late 2019.
