27 September - 2 November 2008
During a residency at the School of Archaeology at the University of Oxford in 2006, Tania Kovats drew inspiration from the Uffington White Horse: a 2500 year-old drawing carved into an Oxfordshire hillside. She collected a range of objects on a theme of the white horse, and made precise drawings which employ the conventions of cataloguing archaeological ‘small finds’. Her entire collection was housed in The Museum of the White Horse, a museum dedicated to the white horse and to landscape. The museum occupied the interior of a mobile horse-box and stopped off at various museums, hillsides and racecourses during 2007. Catch This offers a unique opportunity to see the newly-acquired Small Finds drawings alongside a range of objects from The Museum of the White Horse.
