murmur - artists respond to climate change
Murmur – artists reflect on climate change
5th August – 16th September
Sarah Gittins, Chloe Lewis, Ellis O’Connor, Meg Rodger and Saule Žuk
In April 2017, five artists together with a curator, and An Talla Solais’s exhibitions coordinator, embarked upon a peer-learning programme. Murmur is the culmination of that programme: an exhibition featuring Sarah Gittins, Chloe Lewis, Ellis O’Connor, Meg Rodger and Saule Zuk.
The programme has three aims:
to create a space for participating artists to deepen and reflect on their artistic practice;
to create an exhibition that reflects on climate change, including an integrated programme of participatory events; and
to explore an alternative curatorial model for An Talla Solais based on peer-education and social engagement.
The exhibition, Murmur, will explore climate change through a number of overlapping and interconnecting themes, synthesising diverse facts, personal first-hand accounts, and the artists’ own imaginative retelling through the mediums of drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, performance, and jewellery.
Whether through local weather patterns, the deep time of geology, or the complex interrelationship of humans and habitat, Murmur will tell a story that concerns us all. How we respond to that story is part of our enquiry.
Murmur – a definition:
A low and continuous background noise; a softly spoken or almost inaudible utterance; the quiet or subdued expression of a particular feeling by a group of people; a rumour; a recurring sound heard in the heart through a stethoscope that is usually a sign of disease or damage.
Information on the programme of artist-led events that will accompany this exhibition is available on our Events page.
Devised and curated by Jonathan Baxter.
