The Book

Lines towards another is the first anthology on the work of Australian contemporary artist Tom Nicholson. Spanning drawing, sculpture, public actions, sound, installation, video, and performance. Nicholson’s work since the 1990s has engaged with critical questions around history, politics, narrative, and representation. Informed by the colonial history of Australia, and motivated by the work of Aboriginal Australian activists, his practice at its most fundamental level examines the role of images and monuments as both catalysts and potential barriers for the creation of histories, reimagining their forms through modes of commemoration.



The Process

Lines towards another is one of those books for me, that I really like to take out of my shelves and browse through. The feel, the volume, the way the texts are laid out and the chapters deal with the various projects, it all works wonderfully. Knowing that the way I worked on the images and made them communicate crisp and clear the projects, installations, performances or video’s are an essential part in this over all experience, gives me great satisfaction.
