Birds feature as surrogates for human presence in the exploration of the tension between the global environment and the human condition during tenancy in this world of noise.
Black is the colour of silence, providing a quiet envelope for the contemplation of the narrative.
Residencies during 2017 at Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery and Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority with the assistance of Arts Tasmania have resulted in work which will feature in two solo shows this year at Poimena Gallery and Devonport Regional Gallery.
The native and endemic birds of Tasmania feature as surrogates for the human occupation in Exit which explores the state of the human condition during tenancy in this world and the residual presence that remains thereafter.
Black is the colour of silence, providing a quiet envelope for the contemplation of the narrative within this world of noise.
Angela Casey was assisted through:
Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts. This series features items from the Visual Arts and Natural Sciences Collections of QVMAG, Launceston and also Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority.
Bay of Fires Art Prize 2017 - Finalist
The Expedition (with an Athrotaxis Selaginoides Halo)
The hedonism of contemporary life depicted as the drive through meal and the four litre cask disguised as something more luxurious. Our attention is diverted from industry’s insatiable hunger which will push us as a society ever forward in search for new resources, which will one day be just out of reach and outside of comfort.
The halo is a discarded remnant of industry, made from Athrotaxis Selaginoides (commonly known as King Billy pine), an endemic Tasmanian tree species. Once abundant, it is now listed as vulnerable and has declined 40% over the last 200 years.
