The Biography of a Bowerbird

The Biography of a Bowerbird

OPENING on November 6th from 12 til 5pm
A Bowerbird is an Australian native that builds a reed-y ground nest & goes to extraordinary lengths to decorate it with stolen goods & found objects.

I have been referred to as a Bowerbird, or a ‘keeper of collections’, and this is my biography. 

This Christmas season is all about what you would find in one of these nests: shiny, pretty things, porcelain bones & shells, objet trouve, glass decorations, pressed metal, butterflies & dragonflies, & all things feathery.
