Who’s been sleeping in my bed?  is an exploration of a theme both familiar but resonant: our entanglements and coexistence with animals.  The exhibition encompasses - through a range of media from video to installation - the sentimental, funny, domestic, decorative and uncanny. Interspecies relationships and issues of human responsibility are examined, alongside dark interpretations of myths, representations drawn from folk tales, nursery rhymes and the everyday.


These reflections, from the twenty-two artists in this show, make us consider our relationship with animals within social and cultural history and other contexts including commodity, exploitation and human/animal inter reliance.
