About the Event
Join Ian George for the opening of his latest exhibition, Museum of the Post Anthropocene with fellow Yarra Valley artist, photographer John Bodin.
The footprint of humanity has ushered in the Anthropocene - the period during which human activity has dominated climate and the environment. This exhibition asks us to ponder “How does life evolve from what we’ve left behind?” Sculptor Ian George, takes a playful and humorous look at this topic, with a cornucopia of whimsical and often disturbing creatures, crafted from wood, steel, found and organic materials. John Bodin's photography records our current times, with dark and gritty visions of disrupted landscapes, enticing the viewer to inhabit his images. This is an exhibition about hope and sorrow, realism and fantasy, inviting the viewer to take stock of our environmental impact on this planet.
