This exhibition aims to blur the line between art and activisim, highlight issues concerning the environment and raise awareness, through art, of the impact that pollution has on the world.

About

As the climate change movement gathers pace, artists based in the UK are joining forces by responding using their art as a platform for debate and collective awareness regarding environmental concerns. From photography that focuses on the complete disregard for the environment by individuals to sculpture that represents a changing landscape due to climate change, each response is an important statement on the desperate need for social change.

OPENING NIGHT: April 6th, 6-9pm

In Japanese kuuki (k-oo-kee) means air or atmosphere and is used colloquially in phrases such as kuuki o yomu which literally means ‘read the air,’ but can be interpreted as understanding without explicit information or the unspoken mood or feelings, or the air or atmosphere of a situation, relationship or interaction.

Kuuki is also used to refer to “the things we take for granted, but cannot live without.”
