The two exhibits represent two views of the natural world and climate change.
The ceramic sculpture (Ajar) alludes to the Easter Island monoliths and to the people who inhabited the islands (The Rapanui). They consumed the natural resources of the island and left it denuded and unable to support them resulting in de-population. The poetry highlights the story and reminds us that the world around us is fragile and that we need to take care of it.
The exhibit of two glass pieces (Alchemy) are based on 6,000-year-old cave paintings showing our ancestors harvesting honey from wild bees. This reminds us of the wonder of the natural world and mankind’s close links with it; the benefits gained from harmonious co-existence as opposed to the danger of excessive exploitation.
Thank you to everyone for taking the time to engage with our work.
