Artist Nicola Hooper explores the darker side of the natural world in Zoonoses.
Drawing from a range of historical and popular literary references, Hooper investigates zoonotic diseases - illnesses carried by animals that can be transferred to humans.
Hooper uses lithography and drawing to create immersive experiences through which visitors can explore their relationships with these creatures and the world around them.
Zoonoses offers a creative perspective on fear, disease and animals through fairytale iconography, rhymes, artist books, sculpture and wallpaper.
