“You might be scared if you saw a colony or cloud of bats pass overhead. You may think of blood-thirsty vampires, or even rabies! What you probably don’t realise is that we humans are reliant on them for survival, just as much as we are dependent on honeybees!”
This month we are pleased to have Angela Tier’s coiled ceramic bats from her exhibition Spook arrive to the Tree Gallery to roost; with four large apocalyptic inspired pieces as well as the remaining bat urns from a numbered collection of 100.
Angela is showing us that this bat colony is representative of a grave image of endangerment for many bats on our Earth and a chance for people to reflect on the impact we have on our environment. She thinks we should consider these bats which we may fear, or allow to slip from our thoughts, and remember that they are vital to our continued existence.
