silences between ticks of a clock: Absence and Erasure in an Age of Cultural Palimpsest
Rosanna Blacket, Madeleine Lesjak-Atton, Nina Sanadze, Gail Smith, Tina Stefanou and Mimmalisa Trifilò
Curated by Matthew Siddall and Karl Halliday

In an era characterised by mass surveillance, the ‘archival impulse’ and the widespread integration of digital media in our lives – granting all connected a platform to speak and enact – do acts of forgetting, disappearing and silence become forms of resistance? silences between ticks of a clock invites the critical insight of six graduate Fine Arts students from the Victorian College of the Arts to meditate upon concepts of absence, erasure and temporality.
