Microsculpture exhibition

Arena/Place:
Category: Arts and cultural, Music and amusements, Wildlift and nature
Date: Sunday 6 dec 2020 - Sunday 29 Aug 2021

The exhibition has previously been shown at the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm and will be open to both the public and school classes at Älmhult's shopping center. This is thanks to a collaboration with - Towards new heights, Kronoberg region, Uponwalls and Naturhistoriska.

Microsculpture by British photographer Levon Biss is a groundbreaking project that presents insects from Oxford University's Natural History Museum in a completely new way. The images reveal an unexpected and often breathtaking beauty and make visible the insect form's many intricate adaptations - what entomologists call microsculpture.

Biss has participated in exhibitions around the world and his work is in several museums and private collections.

During his career, Levon Biss has received several awards and in 2016 he was presented with a Fellowship to the Royal Photographic Society.

The exhibition is produced by Uponwalls for the Swedish Museum of Natural History, where it was shown during the winter of 2019 and the spring of 2020. It has not previously been on this scale.

As a collaboration with schools from eight municipalities in the region, which means that their school classes in grades 4-9 can visit the exhibition three mornings a week, the opening hours are adapted for the public accordingly.

Adult SEK 60, SEK 60+ SEK 55, IKEA Family member SEK 55, children under 18 free admission
