Sangeeta Sandrasegar: Bestiarium 2019

October 31, 2019 - November 23, 2019

Sangeeta Sandrasegar, Mutter and Kinder, 2019. Cut paper, watercolour and glitter, 65 x 50cm. Courtesy: the artist and Hugo Michell Gallery, Adelaide.

 

The series Bestiarium 2019 draws upon the history of visual representation from botanical and natural history illustrations and classical Western art genres to examine the legacy of artistic vision upon ways of knowing the world around us.

Artist Sangeeta Sandrasegar‘s cutouts draw upon the watercolours of Austrian master dyer Aloys Zötl’s Bestiarium, a series of exquisite paintings of various animals undertaken from 1831 until his death in 1887. In Sandrasegar’s re-interpreted Bestiarium 2019, these fantastical animals sit alongside sculptures from collections of various German museums in settings of the artist’s imagination. The palette of the series draws upon the hyper-colour of Indian miniatures, and through these varied references Sandrasegar attempts to fix multiple expressions of seeing.

 

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 31 October 2019
