Michelle Zuccolo: From Flesh & Bone

28 September, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 23 October, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Free

To be opened by Dr Loris Button, Adjunct Research Fellow, Faculty of Education and Arts, Federation University Australia on Thu 29 Sep @ 5.30, for 6pm

For Michelle Zuccolo, the study and depiction of taxidermy animals and skulls; tracing the practice of ‘trophy hunting’ and the human desire to preserve the memory of creatures through art, science and biology has been an ongoing theme. This culminated in a series of works made from taxidermy wild game – referencing issues related to her European ancestry, the ‘hunted’ and ‘hunters’.

In a new series of works and exhibition, following a recent International Fellowship in Italy and Austria researching classical and medieval art forms, Zuccolo presents a suite of intriguing drawings. Here she depicts people in situ – nuns and artists in the course of daily life preoccupied in thought, navigating complex spaces, juxtaposed with other mixed-media works portraying puppets from the ‘Punch and Judy’ series of a strange, satirical and whimsical nature.

Opening hours: Wed to Sat 12pm to 5pm

NB: The Post Office Gallery will open for extended hours, from Fri 14 Oct to Sun 23 Oct 2016, 10am to 5pm daily.
