The Nature of the Beast

The Nature of the Beast
Library Shelf Location 06.ANIM
Publication Date 2013
Description This exhibition brings together a diverse range of contemporary artists, who through their work, confront and challenge our attitudes towards the natural world, and in particular, the animal kingdom. Humankind has long been fascinated by animals, who in turn, have been subjected to research, collection, categorisation, documentation, display and experimentation. Each of the artists within the exhibition creates works which involve an intensive scrutiny of animals and nature as well as a critical engagement with the ways in which we have attempted to understand and control the natural world. Both Tessa Farmer and Polly Morgan were commissioned to make new works for the exhibition at The New Art Gallery Walsall, 26 April – 30 June 2013.
