Avian Forms

Artist Jane Edden is fascinated by the relationship between nature and culture, and the human desire to collect and categorise.

In this small display, Edden explores the ways in which animals are collected and studied, drawing inspiration from the science of comparative anatomy and the folklore and myths involving winged flying humans that appear across cultures, to create beautiful and intriguing works that inhabit a space between avian and human.
