Natura Morta, an exhibition of drawings, mixed media works and installations, explores aspects of humanity’s relationship with nature and the climate crisis, and invites viewers to get active and collect waste in exchange for works on view.

Artist and designer Bettina Kaiser was born in Hamburg, Germany. She has lived in Australia for over 20 years, currently in Sydney’s Inner West with her husband and daughter. She loves being out in nature. She acknowledges that the climate emergency might not be solved by what Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack once described as “Inner-city raving lunatics” or a little art show, but she hopes that together people can at least try to do something about it.

Natura Morta is open May 26 – June 6 Thursday and Friday 11am-2pm, Saturday and Sunday 11am-4pm, or by appointment at Chrissie Cotter Gallery, Pidcock Street, Camperdown.
