Whale in the Room is a speculative eco-fable that addresses what it is to live and die in the midst of the climate emergency and the sixth mass extinction. The graphic story reanimates Hope, the blue whale skeleton centrepiece at the Natural History Museum to take action on the climate. In her rebellion, the blue whale comes to life, charges out of the Main Hall and swallows the legacies of the ‘Wonders of Industry’, both the material legacies of whaling—the first oil of the Industrial Revolution—as well as the display inheritances of the 1851 Great Exhibition.

Europe 1600-1815, Room 4, ‘The Globe’

Daily: 10 - 5.45 and Friday: 10 – 10
