Sleeping Beauties


Sandra Winkworth's exhibition 'Sleeping Beauties' opens Thursday night at Hand Held from 6-8pm.


Sleeping Beauties focuses on the bird and the unwanted book to explore issues of loss and denial. Discarded books are reworked to hold images of bird studyskins sourced from a 19th century collection at the University of Sydney’s Macleay Museum.

'Here the bird is out of context, outside of nature and perhaps is a reminder of our tenuous connections with the natural world.'

If you are in Melbourne on Thursday eve drop by and support one of our interstate artists over a glass of vino!
