I’ll be presenting on the Art Panel at Animal Intersections #AASA2017, The University of Adelaide on Monday 3 July. Also a new installation/iteration of my work boobscape, 2017 will be featured in the exhibition of the same name being held at The Peanut Gallery and Nexus Arts between 4-16 July, Adelaide. More info coming soon.
Imaging a future where no one knows what these objects were for… did we provide them to birds in trouble? where they in museums to demonstrate the type of egg produced by different birds? why the dominance of chickens? did rabbits and lions lay eggs? Utopian dreams

Imaging a future when these products are obsolescent. Utopian dreams.

Delighted to have been curated into the Minding Animals Exhibition (title TBC), which will be held at the Museo de la Cancilleria, run by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs in Mexico City, January-February 2018. I will be showing slink, 2014 and boobscapes, 2018. Fingers crossed for some success with grants to get there and help out with installation (to be honest I’m not sure if someone else can install this yet) and be part of the opening events. Very excited to be showing alongside Sue Coe (USA), Angela Singer (NZ), Yvette Watt (AUS), Catherine Clover (AUS) and other South American and international artists yet to be announced.
I’m delighted that I’ve been invited to respond at the talk/book launch for Barbara Creed’s new book Stray. The launch will be held at The Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne. RSVPs can be made via The Ian Potter website.
