Whitechapel Gallery - Surreal Science: Loudon Collection with Salvatore Arancio

Since 1998 Dutch art collector George Loudon began an extraordinary collection of scientific objects. The collection now contains over 200 objects, including lost-wax casts, minerals, velvet, ivory and glass and extends to strikingly-illustrated books, prints, drawings and anatomical specimens from taxidermied animals to bisected human skulls and papier-mâché flowers.
Whitechapel Gallery invites Salvatore Arancio (b. 1974, Italy) to select from and respond to the collection in an exhibition that stages the objects in dialogue with the artist’s own works.
