The Nudibranch Family 17
This print is part of the exhibition ‘Nudibranch’ by Coco Lom at The Book Club in Shoreditch, London. The exhibition is inspired by Nudibranchs, more commonly known as sea slugs. These luminous molluscs are famous for their psychedelic shapes and patterns, with each piece from the show celebrating a different member of the sea slug family.
The Nudibranch Family
Nudibranchs are shell-less marine molluscs, commonly known as sea slugs. Over 2,000 identified Nudibranch species roam earth’s waters and their juicy, soft bodies are tempting food for other ocean creatures. To make up for the lack of protection from a shell, they use their colour and texture to camouflage themselves and advertise their toxicity to predators.
Many sea slugs absorb and recycle the colour pigments of their food - the brilliant shades of sponges, corals and barnacles. They incorporate the bright pigments into their own skin and some also sneakily steal toxins from other creatures, which they store in their bodies, and then re-use as protection against predators.
