The Arts Catalyst presents Los Angeles-based artist Beatriz da Costa talking about A Memorial for the Still Living with Rikke Hansen, host of Nature Calls: Animals in Visual Culture on Resonance 104.4 FM, London's arts radio station.
The installation, A Memorial for the Still Living, curated by The Arts Catalyst and John Hansard Gallery, is on display at the Horniman Museum until 9 January 2011.
In conversation, Beatriz da Costa will discuss the inspiration and processes involved in creating the installation which confronts visitors with the reality of British species threatened with extinction, and how it relates to her other projects which explore on the biopolitics of endangered species. She will also describe her latest participatory mobile and social media initiative - www.4thestillliving.net
Admission to the event is free, places are limited. The event was originally planned for November 2010.
