Biography Lisa Roet
With the ape as her muse, Melbourne-based Lisa Roet encourages us to reflect upon prevailing attitudes towards these relatives with whom we share in excess of 98% of our DNA, the lingering anxiety with our evolutionary past, our use of apes for scientific and entertainment purposes and the way in which we project onto apes our own fantasies and culture, while at the same time assuming they are somehow ‘inferior’ to us.
Roet’s explorations into the psychology, behaviour and the soul of simian-human relations have won a number of art awards, including the prestigious: Geelong Gallery Acquisitive Print Award, Australia (2013), Deakin University Small Sculpture Award, Australia (2012), Fremantle Print Award, Australia (2011), Mhttp://www.gowlangsfordgallery.co.nz/artists/
