A Guide to the Flora and Fauna of the World seeks to document and reflect on the myriad of ways in which human action and intervention are slowly altering the natural world. The guide presents a catalogue of curious creatures and life-forms that have evolved in often unexpected ways to cope with the stresses and pressures of a changed world. Other organisms documented in the installation are the results of human intervention, mutations engineered to serve various interests and purposes ranging from scientific research to the desire for ornamentation.
This exhibition will open on Thursday 12 February, 6—8pm and be open for the duration of the Melbourne Photobook Fair, hosted by CCP on 14—15 February, 11am—5pm.
Robert Zhao Renhui is represented by 2902 Gallery, Singapore, Primo Marella Gallery, Italy and Shanghart, Shanghai.
Presented in partnership with Melbourne Photobook Festival
