28th November, 6pm | SWEET : PIG MELON | The Bird, Northbridge | Free

Pig Melon is artists Leigh Craft and Luisa Hansal who work together in exploring the relationship between consumerism and addiction within Australian culture. SWEET will see this exploration being examined through the light of the golden age still life genre. This new series of works will delve into aspects of still life, time, advertising, as well as consumerism and addiction, encountered and shared by those who grew up in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s. What better way to start the week than a little self-awareness with Capitalism? Though, if you miss this opening night, the show runs ‘til December 11th!
