21 July – 19 August

The sequel to Rod McRae’s exhibition Wunderkammer, AFTER-LIFE attempts to focus on what it means to be wild, free and autonomous verses domesticated and farmed. The animals in AFTER-LIFE speak to us as an unrepresented slave class, bred, traded, worked, slaughtered, processed and consumed as part of a vast production machine to feed, dress and decorate exploding homo sapien populations—these are their stories.

This exhibition uses taxidermy and animal skeletons including a family of giraffe to present its powerful messages. All the animals in AFTER-LIFE have been ethically sourced. No animal has been harmed to make this work in the first instance.AFTER- LIFE is on loan from Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo.
