WUNDERKAMMER: the cabinet of wonders comes to Western Australia for the first time!
Artist Rod Mcrae takes us on a journey of discovery and surprise in his cutting edge exhibition. Wunderkammer is a German noun referring to a place where curiosities, rare objects and relics are displayed. McRae plays on this terminology using ethically sourced taxidermied animals to explore human interactions with nature. He challenges our own role within the animal kingdom, questioning contentious issues such as conservation and climate change. He plays with the ideas of anthropomorphism and nurturing, without losing the true essence of taxidermy; the idea of immortalising these animals.
This is a show for the whole family – educational, fascinating and thought provoking - not to be missed!
