‘Carrion: Origins’ continues a body of work by Justin Shoulder, which questions the role of humanity at a time of unprecedented destruction of nature. Originally designed and performed for the stage, Carrion, the amorphous being, moves deftly between gallery, nightclub, theatre and cinema contexts. With speculative vision, in this immersive installation, Shoulder reimagines the natural history museum, and brings viewers face to face with the macabre notion of encasing, conserving and prizing an imagined hybrid human-animal creature from a devastated apocalyptic future.
