The last Thylacine
Thylacine from shinylisa on Vimeo.
This video and performance work repeats the last movements of the last Thylacine in the short footage taken at Beaumaris Zoo in 1931. The sadness of the forlorne figure with a projected series of images made in the Tarkine expresses the hope that there may still be wild Tylacines left in Australia. Further the sheer tired hopelessness of a lonely creature in stifling conditions of the zoo cage, dreaming of some different kind of wild.
The work is short, 5" and looped and intended to be projected with an installation of a series of soft, inflatable sculptures constructed within the environment.
