Wanderlust draws links between family history, personal recollection and reaction to places. It presents fragments of the past that we rebuild and reconstruct with our refined consciousness. Our captured memories can be detailed and intricate while simultaneously being reduced to items of mass commodification and industrialisation as we depart on a journey into a world centralised by modern technology. Objects preserve the past and suggest personal experience without revealing the entire story, so that the past remains beyond our physical reach.
ARTEXPRESS is a joint venture of the NSW Department of Education and Communities and the Board of Studies, Teaching & Education Standards NSW, hosted by Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre.
