David Clegg: The Imaginary Museum

31 May - 29 June 2003

David Clegg, The Imaginary Museum 2002 – 2003


The Imaginary Museum inserted into the unique spaces of the Adam Art Gallery sounds and images from a selection of well-known international art museums. A major audio-visual installation project, The Imaginary Museum invited visitors to actively consider the gallery’s architectural spaces as physical containers–in which artworks are viewed and interpreted. In this installation, New Plymouth-based artist David Clegg emptied the gallery of its art objects and brought into focus aspects of the built environment.
