Haunting

Friday, 8 October 2021 – Sunday, 28 November 2021.

Vic McEwan

In 2015 artist Vic McEwan and National Museum of Australia curator George Main collaborated with the Murrumbidgee River – its flowing water and shifting air – to create photographs and video artworks. On cold winter nights, McEwan projected images of museum objects, old photographs and a time-worn map across the Murrumbidgee River, onto fog, mist and campfire smoke drifting over the dark water. The imagery, all intimately tied to the river and its turbulent history, came alive in unexpected, sometimes mysterious ways.

Haunting honours our river systems and their communities of people and other living beings.
