TERRAPOLIS, a term proposed by science philosopher Donna Haraway, combines the Latin ‘terra’ for earth, with the Greek ‘polis’ for city or citizens. The exhibition asks: should we regard animals as citizens? How do processes of nature, such as metamorphoses relate to the creation of art? How do mythic narratives resonate in contemporary society?  Featuring work from 25 mid century and contemporary artists: sculpture, installation and film draw on myth, drama and the animal kingdom to suggest a ‘bioethics’ for the 21st century.
