Venom – Killer and cure

The Natural History Museum London

November 2017

For this major temporary exhibition we designed a series of distinctly different spaces to support the subject emphasis in each zone.  From venomous species and their methods, a ‘forest’ of diversity,  to the science of venom research in medicine staged in a lab setting.  This dark atmospheric exhibition is constructed using various material ‘skins’ to reflect the fragility of an animal before being envenomed.  It draws on our fear and fascination with venom.
