This exhibition is part of the Diorama series that the artist created between 1976 and 2012. The seventeen large-scale photographic works show dioramas from various natural history museums but Sugimoto brings his own twist to the story by emphasising the artificiality of the scene and so reflects his interest in the story of history – “My life is part of natural history. I long to know where that history came from and where it is going.”
