“Pamela Conder – Art with Orangutans”
This exhibtion is a collection of works produced collaboratively between the artist and Melbourne Zoo’s Orangutans. Pamela has spent a lifetime studying, drawing and interacting with orang-utans in zoos around the world. She became aware that many orangutans are interested in the processes of art. The 6 orangutans were allowed choice of colours and medium. They all showed preferences for colours, brushwork and materials. These works are not simply a collection of “novelty” pieces executed by apes.
