Georgia Turner's research is engaged in the transitional space, between the museum and the gallery: exploring the value of objects once they have been de accessioned, removed and no longer have purpose for public display. This research analyses hierarchy and the value of archiving, questioning how objects can determine the level of knowledge that is perceived to audiences of all ages.
This research focuses on the worthless, de-accessioned object.
Influenced by eighteenth century traditions of display, ‘time’ becomes the subject. Collections shift and transform inside the historical institution, and objects remain still and motionless. Specifically, I am an artist that focuses on a drawing practice. I work with the intention to make a drawing a curious representation of hidden objects, to explore the notion of looking challenged through interdisciplinary approaches, to activate objects in spaces of which they typically would not be displayed. Elements of this research relates to ‘Creative Enterprise’ by Martha Buskirk, focusing on the transitional space, and artists working with museological collections. My current research looks beyond the museum, to push the boundaries of the hierarchal space represented through a series of re imagined drawings and objects.
