Artist Vic McEwan discusses his work, Haunting, at the Burnie Regional Art Gallery.
When Vic McEwan visited the Murrumbidgee River, he projected photographs and videos onto the air itself. Campfire smoke and mist provided a continually changing frame, merging art with environment. Prints of this site-specific installation will be displayed at the Burnie Regional Art Gallery, encouraging us to contemplate human history and the consequences of our past. McEwan produced large-scale work as part of his 2015 residency at the National Museum of Australia, collaborating with curator George Main. In capturing images of historic museum objects and painting them onto the moving landscape, McEwan responded to dynamic environmental conditions and contested histories.
