A Centre Culturel Irelandais touring exhibition on climate change
F.E. McWilliam Gallery & Studio, Banbridge, Co Down, Northern Ireland. 12th February – 16th April 2016.
"This exhibition presents some sixteen artists whose work explores the impacts on the environment of our society and globalised economy.
Et si on s’était trompé ? What if we got it wrong?, as the performance-poet Lemn Sissay asks us, in measuring progress by levels of industrialisation, expansion and accumulation. The ice and water of the Arctic, veritable barometers of the catastrophic effects of this “progress”, form one of the key elements of this exhibition. A further important strand is geopolitics and its direct links to questions of energy and biodiversity. Video and multi-media installations, photography, works on paper and canvases bring the complexities and implications of climate change to the fore in the lead up to the United Nations Conference in Paris.
This exhibition is curated by Nora Hickey M’Sichili, director of CCI and will tour to Ireland in 2016."
