Work In Development: She only Barks at Night


04-Aug-2015

In association with The University of Sydney

A performance created from research into the art and science of taxidermy conducted throughout 2014 with Dr Jude Philp, senior curator at the Macleay Museum. She is curating an exhibition Stuffed, Stitched and Studied: 19 century Australian Taxidermy. Using Asti Hustvedt’s book “Medical Muses” about hysteria in nineteenth century Paris, I investigated the work of Jean-Martin Charcot at the Salpêtrière with a particular focus on the trauma of his three “star” female patients Blanche, Augustine, Genevieve. Inspired by a talk given by PhD candidate Leah Lui-Chivizhe “I didn’t like the way I met the masks”

What if the meeting of the masks was a metaphor for meeting your one’s demons?

What if these demons manifest themselves into taxonomy exhibits?

Date: 2015
Season: 5 shows only
Venue: Macleay Museum and Beyond
