Everyone’s favourite Gothic taxidermist Julia deVille returns with a new solo exhibition, Lullaby, at Jan Murphy Gallery. Made up of the Australian artist’s signature sculptures, the works continue in the same vein as deVille’s previous works, such as those seen as part of the 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, in which death is revered, the resultant animals and accompanying accessories a tribute to their former lives. Running through deVille’s work is both a sense of exquisite beauty and macabre voyeurism, the sculptures a beautiful memento mori bejewelled with semi precious stones, metals and antique objects.
