Adam Art Gallery

"I started by collecting things in order to inform my work. What seems to have happened slowly is that the collections eventually became my work." - Patrick Pound

The New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based artist Patrick Pound has had a long-term engagement with the work of Walker Evans, both as a writer and as a practicing artist. For his solo exhibition at the Adam Art Gallery, Pound develops an installation comprised of found images, taking his cue from Walker Evans’s practice of working with a readymade printed matter which he published in magazines such as Fortune and Architectural Forum.

While Pound’s collecting habits are voracious, he is also a great organiser. He is interested in typologies and arranges items according to shared content: ‘tears’, ‘floral clocks’, ‘crime scenes’, ‘sleepers’, and so on. Laying these out in linear sequences Pound discovers points of intersection to create complex grids of structured yet chaotic imagery. A Hollywood film still of a crime scene will sit eerily alongside an image of a real deceased subject sourced from an archive; or a set of postcards will show the same subject, shot by different photographers and describing both changing viewpoints and the passage of time. Pound states: ‘People make sense of the world through assembling, listing and categorising…meaning is to be found in the accumulation of [these] details.’

Patrick Pound’s exhibition is supported by Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa.
