Wild Potions & Human Notions

Seen through the lens of the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic resulting from the indiscriminate consumption of wild animals, these artworks offer a narrative from the virus’s origin to the evolution of a vaccine, to cure mongering and potion peddling. Motivated by the human threat to other animals and the pending environmental meltdown, we see ourselves though anthropomorphism, a theme where animals embody, satirize, and appraise human behaviour and the hubris that prevents humanity from changing our behaviour.
