Brook Andrew Ocula Conversation Brook Andrew By Susan Acret, Sydney

Australian artist Brook Andrew 's practice often finds inspiration in institutional archives, but his intentions go beyond the archaeological: he is not primarily interested in discovering or documenting the past, but in 'un-cementing' history's hold on events, people and beliefs, and in doing so, freeing the discussions taking place today from...
