The exhibition was developed here at The Dowse, and was on show here from August to November last year. The exhibition is now on tour, so we caught up with Elizabeth Thompson herself to talk about the show.

In this episode of the podcast, Liz talks to us about where her work with moths started, how she drew inspiration from her time in the Kermadec Islands, and how the show evolved in relation to the space in the gallery. She also gives us a little bit of insight into how she created such an immersive show, and how she created a sense of delicateness with the bronze cast moths.
