This is the first volume in a series of books by Slovak artist Petra Feriancová involving the contemplation of associations between images drawn from the author’s substantial archive. In this volume they navigate between ideas of reproduction and maternity in the animal and plant kingdoms, as well as in our own society. It is possible to observe these images individually, or sequentially, running along a horizontal axis.
The IMA is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, the Australian Government through Australia Council for the Arts, and the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian Federal, State, and Territory Governments. The IMA is a member of Contemporary Art Organisations Australia.
The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
