Anne Zahalka: Wild Life, Australia

April 16, 2019 - May 18, 2019

Free

The term Anthropocene denotes an ecological turning point where the impact of human behaviour is significantly and permanently affecting our planet, contributing to drastic changes on climate and the environment. In Wild Life, Australia, artist Anne Zahalka considers this impact on the natural world through a series of digitally reimagined photographs of early dioramas from the Australian Museum, outlining unsettling ethical and environmental issues in this country.

Habitat displays and dioramas have long been part of natural history museums. These optimistic windows on ‘nature’ are represented through digital interventions to reflect on culture, aesthetics, and the changing relationships of people to their environment and the natural world.
