About the event

An exhibition of maps, charts and diagrams with an anthrozoologic slant by artist Anna Walsh.

This exhibition of approximately 20 prints (screen and digital) will feature new work alongside some of her classic pieces, including the Dogs of London chart and map, the Peckham Cat Walk map and Big Cats of Britain map.

New prints include London Animal Stars, a series of 16 artworks created referencing animal myths and legends of London, mapped out with their corresponding star constellations. These will include 'The Hunting Dog Canes Venatici’ (Fenton the YouTube sensation dog who chased deer through Richmond park); ‘The Sea Monster Cetus’ (the River Thames Whale) and ‘The Great Bear Ursa Major’ (the mystery bear spotted on Hackney Marshes in the 80’s) among others. All these animals also come together in 2 prints, The North Circular Celestial Menagerie and The South Circular Celestial Menagerie, inspired by vintage celestial globes mapping the animal legends in the stars.

Combining traditional skills of observational drawing with digital design to create faux educational charts, maps and diagrams, Anna’s practice seeks to re-imagine and subvert the ways humans categorise and view the natural world. She blends languages of science and art to create intricate maps, diagrams, or visual references that invite the viewer to take a closer look to explore and get the most out of them, or to find the subtle subversions, often with a humorous undertone, and many with a London-centric viewpoint.
