Fancy Seeing You Here is an animated video of a group of endangered Australian native birds interacting in a tree. A chorus of their birdsong accompanies the ceramic birds sweet movements, and acts as a portal to the beauty of the natural world.

Cassie Thring

Cassie Thring is a multidisciplinary artist working from Floating Goose Studios on Kaurna land, Adelaide, SA. Her work reflects an interest in the riches and sorrows of life, in an earnest search for the meaning behind the uncertainties of life’s adventures. 

Working mainly across sculpture, printmaking and installation, Thring’s work attempts to untangle such mysteries with a combination of humour and tragedy. She has a genuine determination to play with ideas and ways of making, becoming both maker and explorer. 

A passionate advocate for accessible art programs in ageing, indigenous and youth communities, Thring has participated in local and international residencies, is the recipient of several grants and has been a finalist in The Ravenswood Australian Women’s Art Prize in 2018. Thring’s work is held in the Art Gallery of South Australia, the National Museum of Canberra and private collections, both in Australia and internationally.
