Natural Selection is a new exhibition by previous Zabludowicz Collection Annual Commission artist Andy Holden, developed in collaboration with his father Peter Holden and produced by Artangel. The exhibition explores and unites the artist's fascination with the applications of creativity and obsession with his father's expertise on the science and behaviour of birds, through a series of installations, films, and displays of ornithological specimens. The project originates from earlier father-son collaborations, including Lecture on Nesting, which was presented at PERFORMA13, New York with the support of Zabludowicz Collection. 

Natural Selection is exhibited at the former Newington Library, South London, until Sunday 5 November. Further information is available on the Artangel website.
