The photobook Seeds From The Zoo features over fifty images from Dunne’s two-year documentary photography project on Giza Zoo’s flora and fauna. Established under British occupation in 1891, the zoo houses trees native to India, Brazil, Burma, Australia, Madagascar and the Malay Peninsula, which were imported to Egypt via the Suez Canal. On visits to the site, Dunne collected fallen seeds in the grounds and later painted the pattern of animals skins on their pods.

This body of work explores the aftermath or consequences of an environment without bees, a kind of future anterior scenario. Bees play a vital role in our natural ecosystems as they are responsible for the pollination of many fruit, nuts, vegetables and other species. 100 crop species provide 90% of food worldwide and of those approximately 70 species are pollinated by bees. The high mortality rates of bees in Europe, America and Asia significantly threatens global biodiversity and it is this danger or sense of threat that underpins the work.

About the Artist
Antonia Kenny is a photographer studying in Dublin, main fields of interest include portraiture, music, street and documentary photography.

Family photographs may serve to show us the past, but what do we do with them? How do we use them? Who do we show them to? It seems that the Family Album is more about today than it is about yesterday. It is an object of performance, it discloses traces of our most presentable moments, traces of our previous lives that are available for display, to be shown and shared, to be talked about. Focusing on the domestic in relation to patriarchal capitalism offers an opportunity to understand the family album. Women’s control over this object permission used as a tool for meaning making – one in which women express agency, claim their voice and declare the complexity of humanity with respect to patriarchy.

About the Artist:
Catarina Leone creates mixed media artworks, film, performances, analogue-collage and installation. With a conceptual approach, she touches on the relationship that society has with popular culture and mass media, working with repetition, provocation and the investigation of the process of expectations. By taking the performance of daily life as subject matter while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of mainstream values, she finds an inherent awkwardness, that echoes our own vulnerabilities. The artist also considers movement as a metaphor for the ever-adjusting woman who experiences a continuous stride for perfection. The construction of materials through Catarina Leone’s work are metaphorical of the diverse psychological states which, like identities, are never fixed and are constantly in flux.
