Launceston Grammar Residency 2019
Launceston Grammar School, (senior campus).
A series of new work featuring assets from the Science Department and DV Gunn Archives. Over many decades, old scholars donated items to the Launceston Grammar Museum, once situated near the Headmaster’s suite. There is a small sample of the shell collection near there, in deference to the past Museum. The collection seems to have developed in the manner of 19th Century classification, and curiosity about the world. Remnants are still at School – including shells, biological specimens, rocks, fossils, minerals and science equipment. The Ramsey Institute donated anatomical specimens preserved in formaldehyde, such as the cotton mouth viper featured in "The Fall".
