Last Chance to See – Cape Farewell

stranded_harvey_ackroyd.jpgThis Sunday is your last chance to see Stranded, Heather Ackroyd & Dan Harvey’s 6-metre long Minke whale skeleton at the Conservation Centre.

After retrieving a whale carcass from Skegness last year, Ackroyd & Harvey applied a special process to the clean bones that slowly produced a covering of delicate, iridescent alum crystals.

Alex Hartley’s Nymark (Undiscovered Island) follows in the footsteps of the early explorers with a topographically inspired photographic installation of a ‘new’ island he discovered and named in the Arctic.

Gautier Deblonde’s photographs of Rachel Whiteread’s Embankment show her impressive installation in Tate Modern’s cavernous Turbine Hall that was influenced by her experience of the High Arctic.
