Metal Mothers By Micah Rustichelli featured in Lend Me Your Touch a solo show in Brisbane. The exhibition, inspired by the events of 2020, explored the science of touch and connection. This particular work was inspired by the Harry Harlow money experiments of the 1950’s where he studied the importance of physical touch to the wellbeing of creatures. Images of the unethical experiments were featured in Life magazine as a scientific article but now have a rather haunting quality to them. The subject of this work is one such image of an infant monkey choosing between two artificial mothers for which one will provide the most comfort.
