How do archiving processes record and present certain stories? What are the legacies of these processes?

Antecedent explores spaces and absences in forms of visual storytelling and record keeping.

Drawing from diverse sources like European ghost stories, historic houses and colonial dictionaries, this group exhibition by early career artists Jenna Lee, Col Mac and Miranda Hine highlights the nooks and spaces in our histories, and helps us potentially see the present with more clarity.

 

From the artists:

“In the same way you wouldn’t expect to understand a piece of music after a single listen, through revisiting art and the archive we can find a deeper understanding for the work and the connections that might not have been immediately clear,” – Col Mac.

“The three of us have been working together in different capacities for a while now – as designers, artists, curators and researchers. The more we talk, the deeper we find the connections between our individual practices to be. This exhibition marks the first time we’ve focused our concerns together creatively in one exhibition,” – Jenna Lee.

“How do archiving processes record and present certain stories? What are the legacies of these processes? The paintings and sculptures in Antecedent glimpse into specific histories that we are each intenseley invested in, understanding how they’ve been documented and retold. Drawing from diverse sources like European ghost stories, historic houses and colonial dictionaries, it highlights the nooks and spaces in our histories and helps us potentially see the present with more clarity,” – Miranda Hine.
