Menagerie Merveilleuse: curious beasts of Bundoora and beyond

July 6, 2012 - August 26, 2012

Inspired by the 2,500 new species discovered on the Australian expeditions of French explorer Nicolas Baudin, Sharon West presents a selection of unnatural specimens overlooked by his zoologists. Marvellous hybrid curios are featured including kangaroosters and budgeroos, purportedly encountered by John Batman during his surveying of Port Phillip.

Winner of the 2011 Darebin Art Show award, Sharon West is the inaugural Artist in Residence at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre.
