Metamorphosis by Matteo Bernasconi
Matteo Bernasconi‘s exhibition Metamorphosis is inspired by the book of Franz Kafka. The work investigates the transformation and the changes that occur in each of us throughout our life span. Metamorphosis can occur at different levels – physically and mentally and is a transformation that provides an escape from a trap that oneself can be caught in.
Matteo’s work explores the human condition; the duality of human nature is a recurring characteristic in his paintings. He shows not only the mere physical appearance, the facade, but he focuses on unveiling something else, unseen. He exposes what the subject is, not just who the subject is.
Join us Thursday 28 March for what promises to be a special night, with the opening night of Metamorphosis by Matteo Bernasconi, coinciding with the first night of Art Month Chippendale!
For this special occasion, Peach Black Gallery will open its doors until late for another exciting art party!
Where: 97 Regent St, Chippendale

When: Every day, 12pm to 6pm now until Wednesday 15 May
Early photography at the Australian Museum 1857–1893
The Australian Museum’s newest exhibition, Capturing Nature, will take you back to a time when photography was revolutionising art, science and society.
This original exhibition features beautiful, haunting and sometimes strange specimens of early experimental photography never before revealed to the public.
Taken from the AM’s extensive archival collection of glass plate negatives, the large-format photographic prints showcase the scientific discoveries of museum scientists between the 1850s and 1890s, while also telling the story of the advent of photography in the young colony.
The images range from the initial tentative experiments in the 1850s to the time when photography was becoming an indispensable part of museum practice in the early 1890s. The subjects vary from fish specimens to mammals and megafauna fossils.
With rich, silvery, large-format prints, period cameras and showcasing some of the original skeletons and taxidermied animals featured in the photographs, Capturing Nature brings to life the story of one of humankind’s greatest inventions and a Victorian obsession with immortality.
