Fallax II Exhibition

Guildford Arts/Clyde and Co, Guildford, Surrey. Spring 2012

The Victorian leisured classes were much disposed towards the study of natural history and often possessed cabinets of curiosity in which to display their treasures.

Material is often exhibited in museum collections in a way that leads the viewer to interpret in a specific way what is presented.

Building on the principles underlying Fallax I, Jose Nieves has created a similar collection relating to a small beetle, Chrysomela pilosus commenticious, and its host plant, Indicum perexiguus hariolus.
