About

Animalesque / Art Across Species and Beings brings together an outstanding selection of artworks - film and video, drawing and sculpture, installation and sound art - that invite visitors to rethink the human position in the world, its relationship to all other life forms and to the various complex ecologies that bond beings together.
A growing awareness of living in an environmentally fragile planet led many artists to reconsider the role of art and in responding to current challenges. Many artists have been rethinking the relationship between humans and nature, the effects of changes to the earth's climate and the ways in which all species are caught together within complex causes and effects.

Participating artists: Allora & Calzadilla (USA/Cuba), Pia Arke (Greenland), Pierre Bismuth (France/Belgium), Marcus Coates (UK), Mary Beth Edelson (USA), Simone Forti (USA), Luca Frei (Switzerland/Sweden), Pierre Huyghe (France), Carsten Höller (Germany/Sweden), Joan Jonas (USA), Annika Larsson (Sweden), Louise Lawler (USA), Britta Marakatt-Labba (Sweden), Amalia Pica (Argentina), Ho Tzu Nyen (Singapore) and Paloma Varga Weisz (Germany).

Animalesque has been produced by Bildmuseet, Umeå and is curated by London-based writer Filipa Ramos. Assisting curator: Anders Jansson, Bildmuseet.
