Ana England: Kinship

September 8, 2017 – March 4, 2018

Free Admission Press ReleaseBecome a Member  

Ana England is fascinated by the foundational and fundamental connections inherent in nature, and believes that if you look closely, you will find that the connections between us are greater than those separating us. England’s work emphasizes and incorporates shared patterns and structures that are present in vastly different scales and across various natural elements as a way to underscore the connections, or kinship, between the larger cosmos, the human realm, and the microscopic universe. 

In observing the curl of a galaxy imprinted in a fingerprint or in contemplating that minute solar systems are embedded in the atoms creating our cells, England reveals a community that transcends race, nationality and species identification. This exhibition will feature several of England’s large-scale sculptures and installations, masterfully crafted to highlight the profound tapestry of kinship in our existence.

This visually stunning documentary tells the story of biologist and artist Ernst Haeckel (1834–1919), whose remarkable discoveries in the depths of the sea united concepts of art and science. Haeckel’s achievements and the ideas explored in this film relate closely to the current exhibition Ana England: Kinship. England creates sculptural work that prompts reflection on the connections between us and consideration of the profound tapestry of kinship in our existence.   Join us for this screening with an introduction and post-film discussion led by Dr. Svea Bräunert, Visiting Associate Professor in German Studies at the University of Cincinnati.
