Jenny Gillam: Another Green World

23 May–30 April 2004

Jenny Gillam digitally alters found images of nature, to reflect on the role of ‘nature’ in everyday life and on such topical issues as genetic engineering, genetic modification, battery farming, and animal welfare. Featuring lambs, bunnies, and Scottie dogs, the Wellington artist's photos and videos have instant appeal—they're deliberately kitsch. But, looking beyond their glossy finish, things aren't right. The lambs aren’t cute; they're taxidermy.
