Michele Beevors
Anatomy Lessons 2005 – 2018
2nd May – 19th May 2018

Created by Dunedin artist Michele Beevors over the last 13 years, ‘Anatomy Lessons 2005 – 2018’ features life-sized hand knitted skeletons, unimaginable in their detail. Whilst many of us are bound to relate hand knitted wool items with something a loved one might have made for us, this show causes these feelings of comfort to be replaced by the unease of combining wool with a skeletal form.

This thought provoking show reflects the fragility of loss and refers to the idea that our ‘biology is our destiny’. It begs the question, what will be left after the next big extinction?

‘Anatomy Lessons 2005 – 2018′ opens to the public on the 1st May at 6pm at IPAG’s second pop up gallery space – 11 Don Street, just two doors down from our current home.

While the artist is in Invercargill, she will be holding a workshop and seminar, both of which are open to the public.

Workshop: Wednesday 2nd May 12.30pm
Under Michele Beevers’s guidance, a community knitted sculpture will be created, which will then be displayed at different locations around the city once completed

Seminar: Wednesday 2nd May 6pm
A chance to hear Michele talk about Anatomy Lessons 2005 – 2018 and her inspiration behind the concept.

All are welcome to the above events, registrations are not required. Simply come along and be part of this unique experience.
