Artist Swirls a Swarm of 10,000 Ceramic Insects Across Gallery Walls #ArtTuesday
Whimsical work from artist Anna Collette Hunt featured on My Modern Met.
Several years ago, Anna Collette Hunt “stirred the swarm,” summoning 10,000 insects into the towers of Wollaton Hall, which is home to the Natural History Collection in Nottingham, England. These weren’t real bugs, but were handmade ceramics created by Hunt. The impressive collection of gold and jewel-toned creatures swirled across the walls and down the stairs of the Hall. Each insect was unique and had subtle variations—some were missing wings or limbs.
