2015 Research Fellow Victoria Cooper
Victoria’s research for her Siganto Foundation Fellowship investigated montage within the collections of the Australian Library of Art. Her focus and interest was in the creative “cut and paste” (including digital) construction of visual narratives using photomontage, text and mixed media. Integral to her critique was the consideration of how selected artists have utilised these image compositions within the space of the page and book.
Victoria presented her research paper at the Siganto Artists’ Book Lecture Series 2016 and her research paper Liminal moments at the edges : reading the montage in artists' books has been added to the collections of Australian Library of Art.
