The collected models and moving image works of Brit Bunkley also suggest other ways of looking. Each site tells the tale of the cost of progress throughout history. Called Ghost Shelter, this project documents architectural landmarks that have been deserted and represent difficult histories. Using drone and 3D scanning technologies to map and recreate these spaces, Bunkley extracts his subjects, removing the context and the meaning.
Glen Hayward is also interested in the way history is represented. Creating his own hand-carved immobile Toyota Corolla, he references child-hood associations that play on ideas of discovery and different perspectives on the world. Each of the elements in his installation are like the rings of a tree, telling a slightly different version of events as time passes.
Although these are a series of distinct individual projects, there are also overarching ideas woven through the exhibition. Notions of dereliction and abandonment, manmade environments and conversations about history are explored in various ways, highlighting the intersections and crossovers between each artist’s project.
