THE HALL OF ROCKS AND MINERALS
December 23, 2013 § Leave a comment
Ilana Halperin is the Artist-Curator of geology for The Music Hall, the new museum and art gallery in Shrewsbury, the birthplace of Charles Darwin. She has been working closely with museum staff to develop the overall aesthetic strategies, selection of artefacts for display and interpretation of the museums’ nationally important geology collections. Her own new sculptural works will also feature within the permanent display of the collections. BAFTA nominated animator Iain Gardner has been commissioned by Ilana to develop a hand drawn animation telling the story of the 600 million year long global journey of Shropshire landmasses through geological time. She has also invited the award winning writer, Nicola White, to develop a series of miniature narratives which highlight the many remarkable stages within this geological story.
