HATCHED : THE NEO BAROQUE SPECTACLE

So readers can get an idea of what the fuss is about here are some images of Zoe Kirkwood talking about her winning work at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art on Saturday afternoon. Spectacle is no exaggeration. Zoe received The Doctor Harold Schenberg Art Prize of $35,000 judged by Amy Barrett Lennard (Director, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art), Professor Ted Snell (Director, Cultural Precinct, The University of Western Australia) and David Broker (Director, Canberra Contemporary Art Space) on Friday afternoon.
