For over two decades Lisa Roet’s art has interrogated the complex relationship between humans and our simian cousins, drawing on associated debates around evolution and creationism, language, communication and science to highlight the critical challenges facing humanity today.

An extension of her visual art practice, Lisa Roet’s extraordinary jewellery also reminds us of our connection to our closest animal relatives, by adorning the human form with a potent sense of the “Other”. Her latest project – Humanzee – is a range of sculpture and wearable gold, silver and bronze jewellery pieces, where caste gibbon fingers and monkey hands clasp human limbs in a form of ape communion.
