From the bird’s eye
Opening Friday 26 July, 5:30pm
Exhibition continues until 17 August 2019
This exhibition is inspired by and dedicated to the Swift Parrot Nesting Box Project, which installs breeding boxes in Blue Gum forests for the endangered Swift Parrot, and the Tasmanian Raptor Refuge, which rescues injured raptors, nurses them back to full strength, then releases them back to the skies.
These are admirable interventions, they are gestures of love and hope.
In a world where humanity is blinded by its chronic narcissism, there is something symbolic and profound in these altruistic gestures.
This exhibition is an expression of reverence for the birds of the world and the air they fly in.
