ANIMA MUNDI: Drawn stories of migration

20th November 2018 - 25th November 2018

This unique exhibition of work by the award-winning reportage illustrator George Butler, focuses on human and animal migration and the intrinsic connection of living things.

‘When we think of migration we think of refugees in boats or swallows on the wing, but we rarely consider how they might connect.’

This exhibition traces the living contours of the earth, from human migration to animal existence and asks the viewer to consider how these might be linked.

George’s desire to record scenes in ink rather than with a camera has meant he has witnessed some extraordinary moments – refugees huddled round fires in a Belgrade warehouse, the mass movement of wildebeest on the plains of the Masai Mara, children playing on bombed-out tanks, families searching through the rubble of their destroyed homes and the annual migration of the seabirds.
