Map of a Falling Dark is a small exhibition at the Butter Factory, Denmark. It combines some work from my Scent of a Falling Dark exhibition held in Fremantle last year with new work exploring the theme of de-extinction. ‘Reproduction’, the print on the far left, draws on images of preserved thylacine joeys to show them being sent upwards to the skies in hot air balloons while another thylacine watches them from below. There’s a couple of other thylacines hiding in this work too…

‘Re-animation’, next to this, shows two human-like figures wearing thylacine masks. In the background, a view through a large window references the ‘Reproduction’ linoprint as well as a framed picture of Benjamin, the last thylacine in captivity, on the wall.
These prints along with the others on this wall will also be on show at the Swan River Print Studio’s Summer exhibition opening Saturday 9th February at Early Works in South Fremantle, along with the work of other Swan River Print Studio artists.
