Kim Mahood – Quarterly essay
This is the long-form quarterly essay: Objects for an Unknown Future Museum by Kim Mahood. Sally Simpson’s Venerated Remains are powerful evocations of an ancient world, deriving from a recent manmade lake returning to its natural state. Kim Mahood finds in Sally’s work an important expression of the non-indigenous relation to land, which reflects both the desire for a foundational history and the settler sense of non-belonging. This is the keystone essay for the With Nature issue #3, December 2017.
