This group show hunts the beast: What is an animal nation?
Philosophical questions surround animalia since the acknowledgement of the Anthropocenic epoch; the recognition that human activity has impacted all biological life on earth. Navigating this terrain, artists Stewart Cole (editioned print), Christian Bishop (sculpture), Katja Mouvlin (painting), Travis Ficarra John (digital painting), Liss Fenwick (photography), Youjia Lu (video), Darren Tanny Tan (photography), Michael Needham (sculpture), Talitha Kennedy (sculpture), Kate Rohde (sculpture) & Ben Laden (durational performance) have mustered around the idea of an Animal Nation employing a variety of territorial pissings. Rather than exhibiting representations of animals, the artists instinctually play with themes of anthropomorphism, hybrids, animal politics, citizenship, animal consciousness and the beast within.

CURATED BY SIMON PERICICH
CATALOGUE ESSAY BY BRIE TRENERRY
