BRUCE RIMELL- Modern Palaeolithic

10 November - 11 December

Modern Palaeolithic springs from Bruce Rimell's long-standing personal interest in Palaeolithic imagery and draws upon insights into the archetypal hunter-gatherer mode of life which forms the majority time-period of human evolution. Drawing from archaeological data, the findings of specialists such as Lewis-Williams and Henshilwood, and from personal visits to Palaeolithic sites such as Altamira, Ekain and Creswell Crags, this exhibition explores the experiental, mythical and cosmogonical motifs thought to have been understood by the cultures of the Upper Palaeolithic from the Atlantic coast of Western Europe to Lake Baikal in Eastern Siberia.
