Anne Zahalka: Wild Life in the Age of the Anthropocene - Art Collector

Anne Zahalka, 'Flocking flamingos', 2018. Pigment ink on stretched canvas, edition of 5 + 2AP, 100 x 150cm. Courtesy: the artist and Dominik Mersch Gallery, Sydney.

Anne Zahalka is one of Australia’s most accomplished photo-media artists, using her images to deconstruct familiar clichés and reflect on the relationship between people and the natural world. To create her most recent series, Zahalka visited the natural history museum in Mumbai, turning a playful and critical lens onto taxidermied animals in lush, constructed dioramas. In these images, didactic tools are turned on their heads through her digital interventions. Zahalka introduces planes slashing across a painted sky, rubbish piling up beside an animal encounter, and cityscapes infiltrating the horizon in order to mark out unsettling ethical issues.
