Something Else is Alive: Sydney and the Animal Instinct

Glenn Barkley and Holly Williams of The Curator’s Department write, “urbanised and sprawling, Sydney is deeply urbane yet paradoxically wild”, arguing that our lives, architecture and intuition are tightly woven with the animal kingdom. Artists Mechelle Bounpraseuth, Blak Douglas, Mylyn Nguyen and Garry Trinh present cross-media works in street photography, video and ceramics alongside a collection of animalia gifts received by the City of Sydney, and objects from the Australian National Maritime Museum.
