It’s going to be a dull and showery weekend one way or another and you probably have a thousand and one tasks you should be tackling. However, if you want to shake up your world a bit, this looks like a fascinating exhibition, Making Nature: How We see Animals.
It’s on at the Wellcome Collection – which is really easy to get to for us North Londoners. This is how they introduce the show:
‘No matter how you see nature now, you’ll never see it the same way again.
Kicking off a year-long exploration into our relationship with nature, this major exhibition examines what we think, feel and value about other species and the consequences this has for the world around us. It brings together over 100 fascinating objects from literature, film, taxidermy and photography to reveal the hierarchies in our view of the natural world and consider how these influence our actions, or inactions, towards the planet.’
