‘In the adjacent gallery, Neoneanderthals is a collaboration between Robbie Bushe and Jeanne Cannizzo. It poses the question, if homo sapiens have made such a mess of things, maybe cloned neanderthals, neoneanderthals after “de-extinction,” might do better. Bushe’s crowded canvasses follow the de-extinction process through a phantasmagoria of DNA extraction machinery and the like till finally the neoneandethals take over and everything gets better. Canizzo’s work is a series of bizarre and surreal assemblages whose themes of neoneanderthal life run in weird counterpoint to Bushe’s paintings. Duncan Macmillan’.
