The half world between human and animal

03 December 2016 until 28 January 2017

Main Gallery

The zoomorphic transformation of humans taking on animal form has been part of folklore and religion for millennia, from native American skin walkers, Egyptian gods and the creatures of European fairytales. These hybrids explore the imagery of fantasy and magic but also the essential animal instinct behind all human nature. The work in this exhibition explores the half world between human and animal through ceramics, textiles and print.
