"Library of Babel North Eastern Regional Branch and Administration Offices"
Josh Daniel

Opening: Tuesday 6 September, 6–8pm
Dates: 6–24 September 2011

What you see at Bus Projects are the remainders of the famous and highly esteemed Library of Babel’s local lending service. While the North Eastern Regional Branch and Administration Offices have been closed for some time, the items left on view will hopefully provide an insight into the greater institution’s rich catalogues. The Library of Babel itself was first brought to widespread public attention in Jorge Luis Borges’ fascinating essay of the same name. Essentially a travelogue through the Library’s head campus, it also attempted to explore the ambiguities faced by any significant cultural institution in the present climate. As Borges alluded to within his depictions of very low worker morale, the Library must also address specific problems to do with the contested roles of language and semiology amid a looming crisis of redundancy. We trust that visitors to this exhibit will have their faith in the Library’s true worth, as well as longer term viability, reaffirmed.

Josh Daniel is currently undertaking his MFA at Monash University. This year he exhibited Remnants of an Archive of Lost Places, a fictional museological project at Seventh Gallery. His project prior to this was the faux art museum MoNAF Seoulin Hongdae, South Korea. Daniel co-exhibited Inglenook, an installation of video and glass at Spacement, and was part of Liquid Light at Bus Projects’ original site. He was included in the Contemporary Australian Video screening, ICA, London, and has worked in a curatorial capacity on Deceased Estate: a Guided Tour for Next Wave and Dispace as part of the Linden Innovators program.
