‘The Vault’ – due to open at City Gallery Wellington on January 29th 2011 – is a series by Wellington-based photographer Neil Pardington which journeys through New Zealand’s public museums and art galleries, transporting the viewer behind closed doors and repositioning us amidst the collection of objects that are Not On Display. For Pardington, the central idea is that of the camera as ‘a storehouse of ideas and images (or as Kodak would have it, memories)’, which he writes about here. These ‘ideas and images’ that his camera has recorded and amassed whilst wandering the apparently deserted back-rooms of national collections ultimately raises the big question: What Makes History?  That is, what’s on display in the Main Collection (and therefore History), and what’s been left behind, in a back room waiting to be remembered? And, conversely, The Vault re-orders our perception of these collections – such as the one that we are in, viewing these photographs on exhibition in the gallery space proper – presenting us the museum ‘from behind’.
