An exhibition ‘Encounters: Bumping into Species’ by Brighton artist Karen Piddington presents a collection of work – film, sound, prints and sculpture – exploring notions of ‘becoming-animal’ and animality.

The artist positions herself in the surrounding landscape and other similar paradoxical spaces, as a place for encounter and alliance with local nonhuman animals and ecologies. ‘I find a position of sameness with animals,’ she says. ‘I ease myself into close proximity, not from a separate human position but from a position of animality. It’s a transformative process of undoing and shape shifting, a kind of shedding of humanness.’

Ambiguity, absurdity and humour is used to test and blur the human-nonhuman boundaries and to open up new worlds and new possibilities for multispecies relationships.
