Nature of the Beast

26th April 2013 - 30th June 2013 / The New Art Gallery / Walsall

We eat animals, we use their skins as clothing, we take nourishment from their milk and eggs, we employ them for sport, we keep them as pets.  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.
