In John Wyndham’s 1951 science fiction book (and film) Day of the Triffids, his Triffids are described as a member of a race of predatory plants which are capable of frowing to a gigantic size and are possessed of locomotive ability and a poisonouse sting.
Capturing this in essence, these Triffids too are fictitious, exotic and colourful looking like overgrown plants that derive from single-use plastics, a material that grows to enormous quantities and slowly takes over the world.
This exhibition series showcases contemporary artits who have created artworks in response to, or who have been inspired by, the written word, namely in varying forms of litereature. Litereary Notions will be a curated series of installation art featured in The Vault @ Bundaberg Regional Gallery throughout 2014.
