Zoo by Richard Billingham

Posted September 15, 2007 12:00 am by admin under Exhibition

Richard Billingham creates a sense of unease with his close up images of animals in their enclosures.

Zoo is Billingham’s compelling series of photography and video installations, inspired by childhood visits to Dudley Zoo in the 1970s.

The artist spent time studying animals in zoos throughout the world, from the UK to South America, to produce this work.

Billingham questions the uneasy relationships between the public audience and captive animals and paradox of animals removed from their natural environment being unnaturally preserved.
