Martin Browne Contemporary presents an exhibition of new works by Troy Emery, TIME TRAVELLERS. Employing a kaleidoscope of tassels and yarn, Troy Emery’s sculptures utilise the aesthetics of trophy animals and plush toys to explore and illuminate humanity’s fascination with the natural world.
Inspired by exotic and decorative textiles, Emery blends contemporary craft aesthetics with the often-confronting traditions of taxidermy to create alluring animals that form a menagerie of strange and beautiful beings.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 2 May 2019
