Anne Zahalka’s work ‘Birds of a Feather Flock Together’ is currently being shown in the group show ‘Wetlands’ at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston from 16/09/23 to 31/03/24. The exhibition shares research behind the importance of wetlands, their vital role within our ecosystem and how we can protect precious local and global biodiversity.
‘Birds of a Feather Flock Together’ from her Lost Exhibition Series at the QVMAG re-imagines the museums historic dioramas which have been restored. Zahalka manipulates the images to highlight the changes of our ecological environment with climate change and the human impact on this world. Through this historic lens, she presents what the future may behold with a dichotomy of utopia and apocalyptic tones that provoke a conversation of preservation and degradation. Our past, present and future are pulled into question in a vision of disrupted beauty, and a powerful yet fragile nature.
