In the brutalist environment of modern city architecture, we often lose our connection to nature and its inherent beauty, its vastness, delicacy and our power to see ourselves as part of it are all at risk of slipping away.
This group exhibition features works from Jonas Marguet, Elsa Leydier, Jake Grewal, Steve Léon Brown and Elena Cremona, journeying our engagement with the natural and why it matters. These works encourage new understandings of what nature is today whilst highlighting global issues of climate change, exploitation, wastage, pollution, species depletion and the decline in local agriculture.
The Earth Issue is a collective of artists and creative professionals working at the intersection of fine art and environmentalism. In common, they share a dedication to raising awareness for the beauty of nature, using art and image culture as a driving force for environmental activism. The collaborators of The Earth Issue aim to highlight a growing interest amongst young artists to awaken society’s complacent consciousness towards our planet; to inspire and harness the power of social change.
