Human Exhibit

The Human Exhibit’ is about a man in a cage in a zoo. Performance artist Mike Mullins spent twenty days in a cage at Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney as the official Homo sapiens exhibit. He lived in the cage twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week for twenty days. Mike’s concept was to present the human animal in the context of a zoo to raise a number of issues about the human condition.
The zoo administration was a key player in the presentation and the official ‘animal signage’ on the cage said it all: “The human capacity to change the environment makes Homo sapiens the most dangerous animal in the world”See more
