How can contemporary art lead to new discoveries about collections and ways of engaging with history? Nicola Kaye and Stephen Terry will discuss this idea drawing from the experience of creating Tableau Vivant and the Unobserved.
In conversation with the J.S. Battye Creative Fellows
Thursday 27 April, 6pm
State Library Theatre.
Tableau Vivant and the Unobserved is the culmination of the State Library’s inaugural J.S. Battye Creative Fellowship. The Creative Fellowship aims to enhance engagement with the Library’s heritage collections and provide new experiences for the public.
Tableau Vivant and the Unobserved visually questions how history is made, commemorated and forgotten. Through digital art installation, Nicola Kaye and Stephen Terry expose the unobserved and manipulate our perception of the past. Their work juxtaposes archival and contemporary imagery to create an interactive experience for the visitor where unobserved lives from the archive collide with the contemporary world. The installation is showing at the State Library until 12 May 2017.
