Melanie Jackson at Picture This Atelier, Bristol

International Fauna gallery launch
Date: 08 May 2010, Screening 12-5.30pm, Discussion 2pm
Location: Picture This Atelier, Bristol, UK

Melanie Jackson in conversation with writer, architect and artist Stephen Beasley and Gary Thomas, Animate Projects. Introduced by Zoe Shearman, Relational.

International Fauna is a blast, an anti-anthem, a parade of the animal symbols designated by nation states quick change through a background of digital colour fields. The representations are matched back with their animal call, for the duration of the image - a concrete composition of the absurd. The work delights in these extraordinary attempts to project national values onto an animal form, and in the forms they have taken.

This event is the first gallery screening of the work
Drinks and refreshments provided.

From 19 April 2010, International Fauna can be seen at
and as a download at itunes
