OF TAILS & TALES
Defining and recording human relationships with natural environments, has been the mainstay of several cultural and historical milieus. Whether individually or as part of a group, community, or tribe, it has been seen that these relationships are not only integral to human experience and existence but also pivotal in shaping our ability to survive.
Through time, human beings have explored their relationships with the animal world, often through associating aspects of aesthetics, religion, desires, utility, myth-making and so on, making these creatures invaluable in the schema of our own existence. Whether perceived as positive or negative, often encompassing attributes of both kinds, their embodiment in art has always illustrated their roles and perceived symbolic significance within the human world.
These workshops will provide a glimpse of varied representations of the animal kingdom, as captured in visual culture through centuries across diverse media, using artworks culled from the MAP collection.
