Uncanny Nature

4 Aug–24 Sep 2006

ACCA Main Exhibition Gallery

Worm juice, wooden escalators, termite ladders, blu tak brains and fiddly filigrees were just some of the weird, unnatural, uncanny things assembled to provoke questions about art and its relationship to the natural world. Assembled by curator Rebecca Coates, Uncanny Nature proposed that nature has always been mediated by culture, whether through an engagement with the picturesque or the conceptual.
