Curated by Kate Brettkelly-Chalmers, ARTSPACE 2008 Curatorial Intern.

This exhibition of Giovanni Intra's archives includes a range of ephemeral material including photographs, contact sheets, test-strips, drawings, slides and photographic documentation, notes, research pieces, newspaper clippings, postcards, original writing, correspondence and clothing. The archive's captivating appeal lies in its zeitgeist quality - the potential for this collection to somehow capture the nexus of 1990s activity and argument that fed into Intra's multiple practices and those of his peers.

ARTSPACE intern curator Kate Brettkelly-Chalmers will discuss the exhibition Beginning in the Archive: Giovanni Intra 1989-1996.

"Beginning in the archive is a mythological pursuit. It is to be seduced by story, narrative and anecdote, to be convinced that fragmentary articles form greater and more significant meaning in a collective whole.Beginning in the archive is to believe that a collection of fragmentary material can speak of that which is no longer present. Beginning in the archive presents a certain impossibility, but a seductive impossibility, nonetheless."
