‘The Garden of Delights on Earth’

 

The Garden of Delights on Earth is an Arts Council England-funded Group Exhibition that invites viewers to imagine a sustainable future through the power of art.

Opening
Thursday 6th June 2024
6 – 9 pm

Opening night performance
PLANKTON – Portia Yuran Li Performance – 7pm
The performance will involve Portia and dancer Erin, interpreting post-choreography dance. 

 

The exhibition features 19 women and non-binary artists whose work addresses conversations and need for action in the climate crisis.
Bringing together artists from live performance, film, print, sculpture and installation works seen from a feminist perspective and community care.
These artworks offer a new lens to tackle environmental sustainability in this Anthropocene era.

Comprising of a series of workshops including; art, gardening, food, storytelling and making a documentary film.
This public programme explores the ways in which material culture and collective expression intersect, inviting participants to make and create artworks on-site, for example, there will be ‘still life’ sculpture using food donated by farmers. We will be exploring where food comes from, and what might we feel about the scarcity of resources as the climate changes.

The exhibited artworks explore ecosystems in practical, material and visual practices, through things that are familiar and haptic, such as cotton, earth and food.
How collective pleasure, desire and joy —our emotions and senses — play a critical role in our resistance against climate change

The exhibition’s curator, artist Tatiana de Stempel says: “These Artists are curious in reimagining how we live in the context of the climate emergency, exploring new ways of imagining the world, their place in it and their relationship with the environment”. 

As climate activist Tori Tsui tweets:“I think the beautiful thing about climate action is that everyone has a role, whatever that looks like to you. So many people are afraid of not being good enough, but right now we need everyone, imperfectly’’.
