Derek Kreckler Accident and Process
Derek Kreckler: Accident & Process brings together, for the first time, five decades of key Australian artist Derek Kreckler’s oeuvre. Its publication coincides with his eponymously titled survey exhibition, opening at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts in August 2015 and touring throughout Australia in the following years. Accident & Process, which is edited by curator Hannah Mathews, gives pause to the remarkable lens-based practice of a widely respected, though under-recognised artist. Supported by the University of Wollongong and the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, and published by Perimeter Editions, Melbourne, this richly illustrated monograph includes newly commissioned texts by writers Helen Ennis, Richard Grayson, Kyla McFarlane, Ian McLean, Hannah Mathews, Sarah Miller, Quentin Sprague and Frazer Ward, which attend to specific works describing key trajectories within Kreckler's career.
