Haunting: Vic McEwan

Haunting is a travelling exhibition developed by the Cad Factory and the National Museum of Australia.

Haunting is a body of photographic and video work made in response to dynamic environmental conditions, contested histories, and our negotiations of a complex future. It is an experiment of painting into the landscape, projecting light onto a canvas of naturally occurring fog, water and smoke and animating museum objects and our understanding of the past.
