Lisa Roet’s multidisciplinary practice questions the complex relationship between humans and our closest animal relatives, the ape and monkey. With the ape acting as a mirror and social commentary, it reminds us of the necessity to re-evaluate our position within this increasingly urbanised world. In 2021 her project David Greybeard, in collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute, will be placed by the City of London in the shadow of the Tate Modern, London. It stands to highlight the COP26 UN Summit and to celebrate the role that art plays in the creation of sustainable futures.
Gow Langsford Gallery has represented Lisa Roet since 2015.
