Artist Lynda Gammon has created a photo-conceptual project honouring little-known or rarely seen works by women artists in the University of Victoria’s collections. Using a large camera mounted on a tripod, Gammon documented her extended “sittings” in the university vault along with the objects and images upon which her prolonged gaze settled. Most remain hidden – packed in storage boxes or hanging on densely packed racks – yet her meditating on them bestows them with a kind of alternative existence.
