Swamp – Lucy Selleck

June 20, 2012 in Art, Calendar, Exhibition, Melbourne+VIC

June 20, 2012 1:00 am to June 27, 2012 9:00 pm June 20, 2012 1:00 am to June 27, 2012 9:00 pm

Swamp creates a fantastic natural history terrarium for hyperrealist interspecies voyeurism. Lurking with battered taxidermy animals weathering a nightmarish environment, the creatures attempt to fight back but always remain on the cusp of being physically overwhelmed.

Amongst the tragically heroic chaos and incapacitation, a tiny space begins to open up- enabling a wistful anthropomorphic identification with the inert animal that sits inside us- equally trapped in the malevolent environment of our own physical selves.
