Hosts by Brisbane artist Nicola Hooper presents her study of the concept of the animal body as a host or vessel for disease through the medium of lithography. Her works reference people’s often contradictory perceptions of animals in the context of fear of disease. Hooper explores the dichotomous concept of animals as demonised or revered, healthy or diseased, and human or animal through these exquisite works on paper.
