To companion a companion
24 June 2023 – 5 August 2023
To companion a companion is an exhibition of new work by Argentinean-Australian artist Fernando do Campo. Consisting of a growing series of paintings representing 365 days of sightings, a video and an online series of published texts, the exhibition presents a robust engagement with ways humans engage with other species where do Campo proposes the human as the companion species to birds.
To Companion a Companion is a collaborative project by Contemporary Art Tasmania, UNSW Galleries and PICA toured by Contemporary Art Tasmania.
Contemporary Art Tasmania is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its principal arts funding body, by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy and is assisted through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts..
