We’re delighted to be partnering with WOW (Women of the World) Festival for their Manchester event from 24–26 May 2024. Invisible Dust has been invited to curate a new UnNatural History commission by Tania Kovats whose new work ‘MOONMOTH’ explores the legacy of Maria Sibylla Merian (1647–1717). Kovats’ drawings will be of cycles, light and dark, balance and symmetry, the lunar cycle, transformation, metamorphism. ‘MOONMOTH’ will be exhibited as part of the first ever WOW Manchester festival, produced by The WOW Foundation and Factory International.

This project is supported through the prestigious Simon Industrial and Professional (SIP) Fellowship, Manchester University, awarded to Invisible Dust.

Find out more about the commission and plan your visit.

UnNatural History is Invisible Dust’s ongoing enquiry into the importance of art and science to natural history collections and their role in understanding climate change. Explore previous projects.

This will be the biggest, most comprehensive festival celebrating women, girls and non-binary people to land in the North West and take over Aviva Studios for three days of life-changing conversations, incredible performances and more, with Factory International.
