Exhibition: A Guide to the Flora & Fauna of the World by Robert Zhao Renhui
Centre for Contemporary Photography. Fitzroy
until 19 April 2015
A highly regarded project by renowned Singaporean photographic artist Robert Zhao Renhui, A Guide to the Flora and Fauna of the World seeks to document and reflect on the myriad of ways in which human action and intervention are slowly altering the natural world. The guide presents a catalogue of curious creatures and life-forms that have evolved in often unexpected ways to cope with the stresses and pressures of a changed world. Other organisms documented in the installation are the results of human intervention, mutations engineered to serve various interests and purposes ranging from scientific research to the desire for ornamentation.
