REPRESENTATION, REMEMBRANCE AND THE MEMORIAL (RRM)
Representation, Remembrance and the Memorial, http://www.rr.memorial, is an international visual arts research project that concerns the Australian frontier wars and the possibility of representing the magnitude of Indigenous loss and survival in a national memorial. The project is led by Brook Andrew, with research assistant Dr Jessica Neath and mentored by Professor Marcia Langton. The project follows several lines of enquiry including investigating international examples of monuments to genocide and community approaches to remembering frontier violence. Research activities and outcomes include interviewing memorial experts, site visits, archival research, hosting a forum, developing artworks, writing a set of guidelines and publications. RRM is funded by a grant from the Australian Research Council Indigenous Discovery Program (2016–2018) and is auspiced by Monash University. The project is based in Melbourne, Australia. We acknowledge the people of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of the land on which our office and studio resides.
