Chua , Genevieve b.1984  / Swivel #7, Turnout
about this work
Swivel is part Unnatural History Drawings, a series started in 2014, that explores the system of museological practices in configuring specimens within dioramas. The artist uses aspects of natural history as metaphor and allegory to hark back to ongoing thematic concerns about fear, wilderness, control and the loss of control. This assortment of objects and visual paradigms of ecosystems project towards larger historical or scientific trajectories.
