More about the artists...
Melbourne-based artist and winner of the National Sculpture Prize (2003), Lisa Roet's works exhibits her fascination with primate behaviour and the genetic similarities between humans and primates. Her works deal with language and communication and how humans are alienated from, while joined to, the animal kingdom.
Local artist and zoo volunteer, Angela Black's works are inspired by her ongoing fascination with primates and an appreciation of their uniqueness as individuals.
