The Groundwork programme at CAST resumes on Saturday 1 September with an exhibition of two film works by Andy Holden.


Groundwork presents an exhibition of two film works by Andy Holden, first shown in Natural Selectionan Artangel project installed at the former Cuming Museum on Walworth Road, Southwark, London in 2017.

In A Natural History of Nest Building (2017) Andy collaborates with his father Peter Holden, a notable ornithologist, to describe the mechanics and idiosyncrasies of bird behaviour.

The Opposite of Time (2017) is narrated by an animated crow, voiced by Holden, who guides us through the social history of egg collecting, illegal in Great Britain since 1954. It’s a story of fixation and tenacity, with ‘eggers’ going to astonishing lengths to find their treasure.

A Natural History of Nest Building and The Opposite of Time were commissioned by Artangel, Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, Leeds Art Gallery and Towner Art Gallery, with the support of the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Spike Island and Bristol Green Capital 2015, the Henry Moore Foundation and Artangel’s Guardian Angels.
