Adele Morse undertakes a fascinating research based practise that draws on anthropological issues such as evolution, hierarchical thinking, scientific advances and cryptozoology.
It is the latter that has become central to her work, having written her dissertation and made a multi-layered video/sound/installation on the search for the Orang Pendek. Combining primary and secondary documentary footage with her own visualisations of this cryptid (a creature whose existence has been suggested but is scientifically unproven), Morse has carried out a thorough investigation into the possible existence of a species that reportedly inhabits remote, mountainous forests on the island of Sumatra.
Appealing to out incessant fascination with the possible existence of unidentified species such as the Yeti or Loch Ness Monster, Morse perceptively engages with our contradictory fear of the monstrous and curiosity of the unknown.
Exhibited at Griffin Gallery in Young Gods in January 2013.
