Beverley Veasey: habitats

15 September 2009 to 25 October 2009

For her latest exhibition Habitats, photographer Beverley Veasey has photographed the spaces we create for animals in zoos. This exhibition, now on display at MGA, provides an intriguing insight into our relationship with the natural world. Across fourteen black-and-white photographs Veasey depicts empty animal enclosures found in zoos and aquariums around the world. Veasey's photographs show our efforts to replicate nature in zoos. We see fake rocks and logs; flourescent lighting; and painted backgrounds that more closely resemble crude theatre sets than jungles.
