Natural Selection at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery

About

Father and son Andy Holden and Peter Holden take us on an ornithological journey: from the building of nests to the collecting of eggs. Natural Selection showcases several multi-screen films, a selection of archival material, and Andy Holden’s own collection of found nests.

‘A Natural History of Nest Building’ exposes the unscrupulous cuckoo; the artistry of the bowerbird; and the nest as an object in its own right. While ‘A Social History of Egg Collecting’ sheds light on this practice in a changing legal landscape, and the resultant criminal operations after 1954.
