Wall Mounted Hook | Gibbon Hand by Lisa Roet | 24ct Matte Gold

This luxurious and impactful Gibbon Hand wall mounted hanger is a shining example of functional object art, crafted by Australian artist Lisa Roet. Sure to make a statement in your space!

For over two decades Lisa Roet has interrogated the complex relationship between humans and our simian cousins through her art, drawing on associated debates around evolution and creationism, language, communication and science to highlight the critical challenges facing humanity today. She has exhibited widely locally and internationally alongside undertaking a range of residencies with research centres and major international zoos and was included in the exhibition 'Primavera 2000: Young Australian Artists' at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.

An extension of her visual art practice, Lisa Roet’s jewellery collection reminds us of our connection to our closest animal relatives, by adorning the human form with a potent sense of the “Other”. The imprint of Gorilla and Orangutan skin is cast and then layered as jewellery upon the skin of the human wearer.
