Natural Selection exhibition by Artangel

Artist Andy Holden and his father Peter Holden share a fascination with birds. Peter is a bird  expert, running the RSPB’s Young Ornithologists’ Club amongst other activities.

Father and son worked on Natural Selection, an exhibition staged by Artangel which was a combination of education and art. There was much more to it than this one room but I wanted to share the seductive beauty of the eggs, so realistic yet all painstakingly made of porcelain and painted by hand.
