              This issue of Antennae and the next are part of a project informed by the exhibition Making Nature: How We See Animals curated by Honor Beddard at Wellcome Collection (London) in 2016-17. This first installment, Making Nature, looks at the construction of nature as a cultural pursuit during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It focuses on issues of visibility and invisibility, both cultural and ecological, to critically appraise the methodological approaches that have defined the philosophies of the discipline. Technologies of visibility like taxidermy, dioramas, macro-photography, and illustration are here juxtaposed to highlight the complicity of art and science in the production of fictional narratives about the world we live in. This outlook should however not be misinterpreted as an attempt to diminish the epistemic importance of natural history but as an invitation to reach further deep into the discipline’s productive core and to devise new natural histories for the twenty-first century. It is in this context that the next installment, also co-edited

                      with Honor Beddard, titled Re-making Nature will more closely focus on the work of contemporary artists whose practice entails revealing the constructedness of nature as a concept to map and untangle important nevralgic and yet under scrutinized junctions in our coevolutional histories with the rest of the natural world.

              Making Nature was an exhibition held at Wellcome Collection in London between the 1st of December 2016 and the 21st of May 2017. It explored how humans have constructed the

              notion of nature over time, a question that has captivated philosophers, anthropologists, scientists, ethicists and artists for centuries. Curator Honor Beddard talks to us about this

              pioneering exhibition.  MORE >>
