Tilt 2010 - Absence of occupation is not rest

Paul Caporn and Kate Gregory

20 November to 19 December 2010

For Tilt 2010 Paul Caporn will be dealing with the relationship between history museums and art galleries.

This will be driven through a collaborative process between Caporn and Dr Kate Gregory, historian from the National Trust. The collaboration between an artist and historian will enable archival voices to be unearthed for inspiration.

By mining the archive and drawing out elements of the history of the site through the installation, the project will be grounded in a relationship between the present and the past. The work will interpret aspects of the history of the site bringing a new reading of the past to Heathcote Gallery and Museum.


Tilt is an initiative by the City of Melville where one artist each year is invited to showcase their talents by exploring an aspect of Heathcote's multi-layered history, using their chosen art medium or a new exploratory medium.
