For our Lost Species Day 2019 exhibition: Generations, ONCA is hosting a free BSL interpreted tour of the show.
Generations is an exhibition of Deru Anding’s illustrations, in which he shows the life of his forest community. This lifestyle and the forest have now gone. With this inspiring series of grand panoramic drawings in which he encapsulates and preserves his natural environment and community for present and future generations.
About the Artist
Born and raised amongst the Bidayuh Tribe near the jungle in northwest Borneo, Deru Anding moved to London in 1998 where he has since lived and worked as an Artist and Architect. Over the past two decades, 75% of Deru’s homeland has been destroyed for palm oil plantations, logging, and other developments. Anding’s drawings conjure scenes of a lifestyle and community lost; his works stretch over a meter in length and are drawn entirely from memory.
