Penelope Davis at Frankston art

Penelope Davis’ sculptural installation Sea Change, as shown by MARS at Sydney Contemporary, is currently exhibited at Frankston Art Centre. The installation consists of a swarm of sculptures in the form of jellyfish, each an assemblage of silicone moulds taken from discarded plastic and technologies, as well as organic material like leaves and seaweed. The resulting hybrid forms resemble plausible but mutant jellyfish, entwining references to human consumption, climate crisis, and the delicate balance of our urban environment and natural ecosystems.
The exhibition can be viewed from the street, day and night, in CUBE 37 at the Frankston Art Centre until the 27th of August.
