Ceramic Beetles * by Anna Collette Hunt

 

Anna Collette Hunt, UK artist, created a large scale installation body of work called Stirring the Swarm.
This installation have more than 10,000 ceramic insects in a traveling exhibition that first appeared several years ago in the towers of Wollaton Hall, England, home to a significant natural history collection.

The artist compares her marching throngs of beetles and butterflies to an awakening of sorts, the idea that her installations depict a reanimation of these long-dormant creatures framed behind glass or lost in drawers.

“Stirring the Swarm is a ceramic installation that tells a curiously dark tale, inspired by the collection of Entomology in the Natural History collection at Wollaton Hall, Nottingham, England. The exhibition lures viewers into this macabre story as they find these enchanted insects, gathered following their flight from the previous infestation. (…) The exhibition has the atmosphere of a Brothers Grimm-style gothic fairytale, intended to stir imagination and incite curiosity, whilst fleeting and disjointed sounds add to the unease and discomfort of the installation.”

The collection of ceramic insects has been installed in numerous places over the last five years, and Hunt also offers a “full scale infestation service” where tailor made swarms can be installed into almost any location.
