About the artist
Ann Shelton was born in Timaru, New Zealand and now lectures at Massey University, Wellington. In a library to scale, Shelton re-presents the personal archive of Fredrick Butler, bringing his vast enterprise into the realm of visibility and acting out a process of excavation that raises as many mysteries as it uncovers. a library to scale depicts 3500 scrapbooks volumes assembled over a life-time and engages its audience in a conversation with ideas of temporality and perception.
Ann Shelton would like to acknowledge the generous support given by Puke Ariki, The Butler family and Creative New Zealand.
