Research statement

Patrick Pound is an artist and academic rethinking ideas of curation and collection. He has worked with many Public Gallery and Museum collections, alongside his ever-growing collection-based artworks, rethinking how things might be found and made to hold ideas. Pound's research is increasingly focused on public gallery and museum exhibitions that rethink collection and display models and unpack how things might be found to hold and express ideas differently in gallery and museum contexts. The research and creative practice entail positioning the collection as a medium. This research also investigates new methods of interconnecting collection works using internet search methods as an organizing system for finding, ordering and displaying collections as artworks. The technique of the intersecting matrix hang, and the performative search engine generating internet artworks is a new development in curatorial methodology and thinking, which asks questions of our understandings of sorting and storing and searching information in the internet age, pressing us to rethink museum models of collection and display. In 2019 Pound exhibited The Fall at Darren Knight Gallery, Sydney. He put to the test how collections of photographs and objects might be found and made to hold ideas differently as if on a dare. The exhibition featured collection based artworks, which posed the collection as a medium rethinking our relationships with things, and relationships between things. Amongst other collection-based artworks, the exhibition featured 'The Museum of Falling', numerous 'Portmanteau' photographic combinations, and 'In the mirror' all of which put to the test how unexpected ideas can be generated through objects.
