‘Disney Meets DNA’ – The Oxford Museum Of Natural History

The Oxford University Museum of Natural History houses the University’s scientific collections of zoological, entomological and geological specimens. The Museum itself is a Grade 1 listed building, renowned for its spectacular neo-Gothic architecture.

This exhibition consisted of a selection of preparatory sketches formal drawings, photography and small-scale sculptures produced during a yearlong residency at the University of Oxford Botanic Garden  2004 – 2005.

The drawings evoke imaginative relationships between the plants studied and aspects of contemporary culture. Some drawings are quasi-scientific, whilst others appear like comic strips that pursue connections between nature and popular culture.
