Animals as Object: Deb Mostert

Based on years of observation and research within the bird and mammal collections at the Queensland Museum, this body of work seeks to explore the paradoxical ‘objectness’ of animals in nature through taxidermy and in culture through the souvenir. This work seeks a redemptive lens to view this paradox towards a perspective of flourishing for all. We have and are creating facsimiles and profiting from these copies despite the real risk of losing the originals. A Tweed Regional Gallery initiative.
