About

Talks on Art The current exhibition at Storey Gallery is Uncertainty in the City: Pests, Pets, and Prey by the artist team Snà ¦björnsdóttir/Wilson. The exhibition explores human/animal relations and our notions of territory by considering the non-human animals that share space with us. The following events will investigate these issues in more detail. The artists, Bryndà ­s Snà ¦björnsdóttir and Mark Wilson, will give an overview of the project which led to the creation of the exhibition, Uncertainty in the City: Pests, Pets, and Prey. They will be joined by guest speakers, Dr Chris Wilbert, Don Holroyd and Ben Ponton, who will place the exhibition within a broader discussion about how our responses to animals shift in relation to context and location. Dr Chris Wilbert is a senior lecturer in Tourism and Geography at Anglia Ruskin University and is co-editor of Animal Spaces, Beastly Places. Ben Ponton was Press spokesman for the Hunt Saboteurs Association in the 1980s and early 90s. Don Holroyd, The Bird Man of Torrisholme, has spent the last 20 years caring for and restoring to the wild, thousands of injured animals brought to him by local people.
