Excavation brings together three artists whose work sits between the certainty of objects and the intangibility of our brief encounters with them. Alongside their own work, the artists will draw upon the University of Melbourne’s Cultural Collection to investigate the archive as an evolving process, where objects are altered by our interactions with them.
