Everybody’s Everything: Insect / Orchid
Work by artist Angela Valamanesh, drawn from her artist’s residency at the University of Adelaide’s Rare Books and Special Collections. She has focussed on mediated representations of the natural world in the Collection’s magnificent books featuring scientific illustrations by Rosa Fiveash (1854-1938), where orchids and their insect-like shapes collide to create a new world of imagery and narratives. The exhibition includes the Fiveash volumes referenced
by the artist.
