In Leviathanic Allusion Natasha van Netten brings together contemporary art and themes of whale research. This dynamic exhibition showcases a variety of drawings, oil paintings, sculptures and installations. The work is inspired by museum displays, infographics, specimens and diagrams. Her practice is motivated by the mysteriousness of whales and the pioneering science of cetology (whale research). Van Netten investigates whales from a variety of unique perspectives in this exhibition including an ongoing piece that changes to reflect the fluctuating population of our southern resident killer whales, works on paper about commodity and whales and an immersive installation about krill.
