Silent Witnesses: artist talk with Martin Rowney

Artist and archaeologist Martin Rowney will guide visitors through the exhibition on the opening day of 'Silent Witnesses'.

The exhibition features sculptural pieces created with original fittings from one of the University's most significant buildings. Early Bakelite switches and power points, Negretti & Zambra thermographs, pressure gauges, fans and bells were salvaged by ANU Heritage during the refurbishment of the John Curtin School of Medical Research.

Martin Rowney repurposed these objects to reflect upon the dichotomy between the significant nature of the research undertaken at the John Curtin School, and the relatively ordinary nature of everyday objects that were silent witnesses to these important events.

If you can't make it on Sunday, the exhibition continues weekdays until 19th January.
