Scent of a Falling Dark

Scent of a Falling Dark is an exhibition of paintings and linocut prints opening at the Moores Contemporary Art Gallery, 46 Henry St, on Friday April 27 at 6pm. The exhibition draws on historical images of the thylacine to explore themes of loss, endangerment and extinction.

Thylacines (Tasmanian tigers) formerly inhabited all of mainland Australia as well as Tasmania and are well represented in Indigenous rock art around the country. The archaeological record suggests that their mainland extinction occurred around 3000 years ago. The thylacine population in Tasmania came under threat from humans following British colonization and the bounty placed on thylacines. The last thylacine in captivity, ‘Benjamin’, died in a Hobart zoo on 7 September 1936.
