A suitcase full of eels
A multidisciplinary practice-based exploration of the role of disruptive, experimental narrative techniques in environmental activism and species conservation
This creative project brings together two academics and artists from different disciplines to use their love of narrative and absurdity to make artworks that draw on the historical importance and cultural relevance of the European Eel, Anguilla anguilla.
Working closely with The Sustainable Eel Group (SEG) the artists will create a body of work that is at once critically engaged, scientifically informed, rigorously researched, attractive and playful. The work will be published as an ‘object book’ and as an exhibition both nationally and internationally, as well as being presented through a series of talks, workshops and conferences.
