Lecture: Images of NatureJun 24, 2011 Friday 19:00

1F, Associate Mission Building (169 Yuanmingyuan Road, Shanghai)
Platform: Education
  • Speaker: Hu Yun


    Language: Chinese


    In 2010, Hu Yun spent 3 months in London doing a residency programme (a partnership between the Natural History Museum and Gasworks) based on the Scientific Illustration Collections (The John Reeves Collections contains more than 2,000 scientific illustrations commissioned and collected by Reeves while he was working in China from 1812-1831) of Natural History Museum. During my stay, a new piece of work which was commissioned by the museum need to be created and would be shown in a wooden scientific specimens showcase in the Images of Nature Gallery inside the Natural History Museum for one year.


    All the amazing watercolor drawings from the Reeves Collection are done by native Chinese artisans before the Opium War and their names are all unknown, which contrasted with the fact that everything about John Reeves who commissioned all these works is recorded in many books, just like many other Great British Names.
