Roll Call & One Object After Another. @ Kandos Museum
My work for Cementa is a series of interconnected pieces: a sound work and posters called Roll Call (2024), and a book/monograph, One Object After Another (2025). These are responses to the Kandos Museum’s collected materials, organised into Albums. I’m drawn to school photographs, yearbooks, and newspaper cuttings, captivated by the many faces, names, stories and lives lived in Kandos.
