N1 - Two of the works: 'Tombs of Thought: Air' and 'Tombs of Thought: Earth' were shown at the National Gallery of Victoria in March 2017 for Brook’s solo survey exhibition: 'Brook Andrew: The Right to Offend is Sacred'. 1295 x 1295 x 1040 (L x B x H main body only); 2000 x 2000 x 2240 (L x B x H with inflatable) timber, glass, paper, aluminium Curators: Lizzie Muller and Holly Williams “Tombs of Thought: Water” is part of a new series of sculptural works, titled, 'Tombs of Thought'. Each sculptural vitrine (there will be 5 in the series in total) relates to an element: water, air, fire, wood, earth and metal. They act as vessels for the display of objects, ephemera, books, postcards and films. 'Tombs of Thought': Water aims to challenge the usual museological and artistic engagement of archival objects in museum and gallery displays..For example in this piece a world globe is turned upside down and inflated. Reminiscent of Phileas Fogg’s hot air balloon the work comments on colonial circumnavigation and fantasy.
