For the opening of Swedish artist Ingela Ihrman's first UK solo-exhibition, she will perform her work the 'Giant Otter Giving Birth'. The performance accompanies Ingela's exhibition 'We Thrive' which runs until 13 April 2018 and draws upon a poetic absurdism characterised by craft and amateur theatrics, contesting and subverting how we see and interact with nature. Featuring a giant hogweed, intestines, a giant otter giving birth before a human gaze and a toad doing gymnastics, Ihrman’s artworks index debates on our complex and problematic relationship with invasive species and the anthropomorphising of the animal kingdom.
