Octopussy Cornered 

14 - 24 February 2018

Thursday - Saturday, 1-6pm

Opening Night: Wednesday 14 February, 6-8 pm


A reclusive creature, Octopussy (Octopus gallus) was first discovered in its larval stage (diameter of .5m), in Los Angeles during the month of June 2015, with many reported sightings throughout the city but after a week it disappeared.


There was another sighting, in its juvenile stage (diameter of 2m), in Sydney on the 24th of July 2016 that lasted for only 5 hours but we are privileged to have a mature specimen (diameter of 8m) in the gallery for the next 2 weeks.

No one knows how big it will eventually get, as scientific analysis has revealed that the body is made up of 8,000 free range egg shells, as each one was individually cracked, cooked, washed, soaked, dried, stored over a period of 8 years and as you can see it is slowly making its way up the wall, as it does not like to be cornered!
