Melanie Jackson in conversation with writer, architect and artist Stephen Beasley and Gary Thomas, Animate Projects. Introduced by Zoe Shearman, Relational.
International Fauna is a blast, an anti-anthem, a parade of the animal symbols designated by nation states quick change through a background of digital colour fields. The representations are matched back with their animal call, for the duration of the image – a concrete composition of the absurd. The work delights in these extraordinary attempts to project national values onto an animal form, and in the forms they have taken.
This is the first gallery screening of International Fauna
Drinks and refreshments provided.
