Specimens 2005

"This group of work continues my interest in New Zealand natural history and the overlaps between science and art. At the Auckland Museum I came across some drawers filled with dead birds, I was struck by how little they told me about birds. These sad inanimate creatures spoke to me more of my own dead, yet these dead things do teach us about life. I am interested what the static museum display does and doesn't teach us."
Tania Paterson, 2005
