Social media comments of the exhibition:

Hi,
Ali, what a wonderful exhibition.  Congratulations!
It definitely makes you stop and think…take time to think about life, our world and the people around us.
Thankyou.

Ali, your show is exquisite.  Congratulations.  What I took away from last night was your commitment and integrity and your highly developed artistic ability.  You are inspiring.

Kim
We went to see Ali Griffin’s first solo exhibition ‘STILL’ at The Memo Gallery, Memorial Hall Healesville, on Friday night, lovely turn out of people to support her, and BEAUTIFUL works. Congratulations Ali!

Diana
It was very inspirational Ali, something to be very proud of.

Jen
It was very……. thought provoking.

Danuta
Managed to view today and loved the exhibition Ali. Congratulations! So many great elements. ‘Still Alive’. performed a treat …. a caterpillar presenting itself and dropping, neatly encased, upon the leaves to nibble.

Nicola
First of all…. congratulations on a truly stupendous exhibition!!!!!!!!!!! It looks/is fabulous. Each work came into its own in the gallery space and said what it was meant to say. Well done!! I was going to buy a dome, but got beaten :(.

Hailey
Awesome Ali you must be so proud and relieved!
The exhibition will resonate with a friend of mine from melbourne I will be sure to invite her up to see – and she has the income to buy something!!
Congratulations.  It takes a very bold and brave woman to move away from a style and medium to something new.
I particularly loved the skull drawings on paper….

Where is the tipping point?

When will we realise we should have valued what we had?

Still Alive

Still exhibition 2015

Still Alive?
As visitors entered the gallery, they were greeted by a display case enclosing live cocoons/caterpillars.
The Saunders case moth lives inside its cocoon for up to 2 years, coming out to eat and moving around the cabinet with the cocoon on its’ back. Resin replicas and reflective illusions trick the eye…
are they real, reflected and really still alive?

Tracks left on the inside of the glass show where live caterpillars coexist with their resin replicas.
An image of the Chytrid Fungus in a specimen dish, underneath a snow dome, symbolically threaten their existence.

Inside the souvenir snowdomes are examples of what we had, outside are willing
subjects to be encased inside the dome, preserved for all time.
Why does the butterfly want to be kept safe from the elements, inside a dome she can never leave?
