New York artist, activist and ecological researcher, Brandon Ballengée brings his startling high-resolution scanner photographs, video and preserved specimens of deformed toads to the Royal Institution for his first London solo exhibition: The Case of the Deviant Toad. The show, exploring issues of biodiversity and ecological change, presents the outcome of the artist’s ‘Ecoactions’ and study of UK amphibians commissioned by The Arts Catalyst and Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

In this the International Year of Biodiversity, Ballengée’s artistic practice warns of high incidences of amphibian deformity in response to environmental degradation through his creation of aesthetically rich images and intriguing installations.
