Haunting honours the Murrumbidgee River and its communities of people and other living beings. It reveals how history – like the river – flows through the land and our lives.

Vic McEwan, the National Museum's 2015 artist-in-residence, created the large-scale still photography and video works in Haunting, in collaboration with curator George Main.

On cold winter nights, McEwan projected images of museum objects, old photographs and a time-worn map across the Murrumbidgee River, onto fog, mist and campfire smoke drifting over the dark water.

Future venue to be announced.
