Simryn Gill: Gathering
The work of Simryn Gill considers questions of place and history and how they might intersect with personal and collective experience. Born in Singapore in 1959, Gill lives in Sydney and Port Dickson, Malaysia. Using objects, language and photographs, her work conveys a deep interest in material culture and in the ways that meaning can transform and translate into different contexts. Through the reinterpretation or alteration of existing objects, the photographing of specific locations and the forming of collections, Gill contemplates how ideas and meanings are communicated between people, objects and sites. Simryn Gill: Gathering explored these ideas through a selection of works from 2004-08.
The exhibition also aimed to reveal Gill’s interest in methods of display and in the different ways in which people might experience art works. It contained a selection of books, sketches, collections and experimental pieces from the early 1990s to the present, some produced for exhibitions and others never intended as art. Together, they offered an insight into Gill’s artistic processes and her interest in art-making as an active engagement with the world.
