Summary

Pulling the British threads in Moby-Dick; prints, handmade books and textile work by Caroline Hack inspired by the British sources Melville used in Moby-Dick.

This year is the 200th birthday of Herman Melville, author of Moby-Dick. To celebrate, Norfolk based artist Caroline Hack is exploring the British books that the author used extensively as inspiration for his epic whaling adventure.

It was in Thomas Beale’s book The Natural History of the Sperm Whale that Melville learned about the Sperm Whale Skeleton at Burton Constable Hall. Whitby Whaler and scientist William Scoresby junior is mentioned several times in Moby-Dick (though not always kindly) for his Arctic whaling and scientific studies.
Caroline Hack has been making art about Moby-Dick and British Arctic whaling for over a decade. She exhibits widely and has work in a number of institutions in the UK and US.

Location: The Carriage House, Burton Constable Stables
