Opening Saturday, 29th June 2019
Drawing from a range of historical and popular literary references, the exhibition investigates zoonotic diseases – illnesses carried by animals that can be transferred to humans. Lithography and drawing are used as a method to create immersive experiences through which visitors can explore their relationships with these creatures and the world around them. Zoonoses offers a creative perspective on fear, disease and animals through fairytale iconography, rhymes, artist books, sculpture and wallpaper.
New works include Run Rattus Rattus Run (above) animation by Dr Zaynep Akcay lithographs by Nicola Hooper and Concerning Cats and Toxoplasmosis works inspired by Lady Francesca Wilde’s Irish Myths. Zoonoses runs concurrently with Lynley Dodd’s Scarface Claw Exhibition.
