Brook Andrew at GOMA, Brisbane

Just before christmas the constantly coloured spacecraft studio turned black and white with the welcome addition of another project with the fantastic Melbourne artist Brook Andrew.

Brook's again been working through ideas of indigenous peoples representation through history and sent us through some of his old postcards for a show 'Ancestral Worship' at the Brisbane Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA).

There's an eerie abstraction to these images; who on earth the pictures are of and what they may have thought about being framed amongst the 'interesting' exotic in household collections for over a century.

An early sketch of Brook Andrew's plan.
