For Tilt 2010 Paul Capornwill be dealing with the relationship between history museums and artgalleries.
This will be driven through a collaborative process between Caporn and Dr KateGregory, historian from the National Trust. The collaboration between an artistand historian will enable archival voices to be unearthed for inspiration.
By mining the archive and drawing out elements of the history of the sitethrough the installation, the project will be grounded in a relationshipbetween the present and the past. The work will interpret aspects of thehistory of the site bringing a new reading of the past to Heathcote Gallery andMuseum.
Tilt is an initiative by the Cityof Melville where one artist each year is invited to showcase their talents byexploring an aspect of Heathcote's multi-layered history, using their chosenart medium or a new exploratory medium.
