Tim Flach: More Than Human

6 December 2012 - 11 January 2013

Many of you have enjoyed the worldwide success of the Dogs Gods and Equus projects. For this exhibition we are choosing to show other aspects of Tim Flach’s work. Here is a chance to see some truly extraordinary images, many being shown for the first time. The new work reflects Tim’s current preoccupation with the contemporary relationship between humans and non-human animals, focussing on how we engage with them within the contexts of history, culture, politics and science. This will all come together in the new book, More than Human, due for publication in October 2012 with a launch and exhibition at the gallery. Through Tim’s unique vision and ability to challenge the viewer, he has created a series of images which encompass not only his personal beliefs, but the concepts common in modern and historical religious and cultural symbolism, the human obsession with ‘cuteness’, cross-breeding, the blurred line between human and animal genetic modification, conservation, morphology and plasticity. Tim brings the viewer into an unnatural proximity to his subjects, encouraging discussion on the human-animal boundary and attitudes towards non-human animals and the changing relationships, both literally and allegorically, between man and animal.
