Unstable Ground is an exhibition that explores the ways that art can address climate change and inspire individual and communal action, and addresses themes of water, tides, flooding, climate change and changing coastal communities.
We are co-curating and contributing to a series of exhibitions and related public impact activities, led by Corinna Wagner from The University of Exeter, as part of the NERC-supported project, Time and Tide: Art, Adaptation, Resilience. Time and Tide features Marcus Vergette’s bells along the coast of Devon and Cornwall, and we are very excited to have one of his bells to be coming to the gallery as part of the exhibition.
Corinna Wagner will also be displaying her research-based, large format photographs, made with a number of traditional and experimental processes (paper negatives, X-ray film, cyanotype, pinhole, chromoskedasic sabattier) and which are developed with natural materials from the bell sites (water, sand, wax). The exhibition will feature a further seven South West-based artists who are working on closely related themes.
The exhibition will be at Studio KIND. from 13th August to 3rd September, and will have a private view on Friday 12th August, as well as a closing panel event on Saturday 3rd September. There will also be an accompanying workshop programme, including free activities for children and a selection of art and creative writing workshops.
