  In recent years, Tarryn Gill has constructed a personal universe populated by mythical beings, ancestor spirits and assorted demons. Part temple, part fairground, these theatrical installations are a projection of the artist’s psyche, where the residues of a 1980s Western Australian childhood merge with the ritual power of objects and images in ancient art and the seductions of 21st-century consumer culture.

The latest installment of this series, ‘Belly of the Beast’, explores themes of duality, particularly death and rebirth, through pairings such as the sun and the moon, and symbols of regeneration such as snakes.
