eX de Medici’s extraordinary work gravitates around concepts of power through violence via geo economic politics and environment Working from her studio in Canberra, eX presents a new series of detailed watercolours of hybridised moths and weaponry. These intriguing and powerful works are inspired by the field work of Dr Marianne Horak in New Guinea in 1973, where she collected micro moths, many of which remain unclassified. The juxtaposition of weapons with these images of natural beauty continues eX’s study into the divide between two sciences. As she explains, “one examining the deep time of the evolution of life on our planet, the other of the accelerated brief development of that which takes life from the planet”. This exhibition runs alongside that of artist friend and collaborator, Wei Rong Wu. eX is currently part of the Know My Name exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia and this is her first commercial gallery show in Canberra since 2003.
