Promiscuous Provenance | Anna Glynn at the Bas

The opening night of Anna Glynn's exhibition 'Promiscuous Provenance' last Friday at the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre gave thecommunity an opportunity to meet the artist, enjoy a glass of wine and dive into lively conversation with fellow art-lovers.

The exhibition, 'Promiscuous Provenance', encourages a re-examination of our relationship with our colonial past where Anna Glynn creates a world of fantasia, caught between reality and imagination as she plunders historical archives for inspiration and draws on the historical practice of copying as a way of expanding the reach of a work and seeking scientific learning.

In creating strange natural history tableaux, featuring bizarre reimagined hybrid characters, she encourages the viewer to reflect on the experience of colonisation, and to reawaken a sense of wonder when interacting with our environment.

'Promiscuous Provenance' is a travelling exhibition from Shoalhaven regional Gallery Nowra. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government's Visions of Australia program.
