Murray Art Museum Albury presents ‘What Remains’ , a selection of works from the Murray Art Museum Albury permanent collection.
What Remains draws together the works of fourteen artists within the Murray Art Museum Albury Collection and includes six works recently acquired by the Museum.
Central to the exhibition is a series of abstract sculptures by Wiradjuri artist Nicole Foreshew, titled Remain. The clay and iron oxide forms have been molded to express her deep connection to Ngurambanggu (Country) and kin.
This idea of connection to land, and impacts on the land and its people are expanded on in the work of First Nation artists Michael Riley, Karla Dickens, Kevin Gilbert, Treahna Hamm and Hayley Millar Baker.
A changing environment is further considered through the 19th Century work of Alfred William Eustace and more contemporary photographs by Chantelle Bourne and Jozef Vissel. While a set of works by artists Tim Silver, Amanda Williams, Ernst Fries, Patrick Hartigan and Cornelia Parker have erosion, aging, and change as central concerns.
Collective impact on the land is becoming harder to ignore. What remains reminds everyone to consider what legacy you wish to leave behind.
