DROWNING NOT WAVING
Jill Orr, Yasbelle Kerkow, Penelope Davis, Florence Tupuole, Emma Davies, George Basil Alokaka, Clinton Naina, Ella Benore Rowe, Peter Lemalu and Paul Handley.
DROWNING NOT WAVING explores the concerns and solutions to the issues of global warming. James Reyne’s 1998 song and Stevie Smith’s 1957 poem ‘Not Waving But Drowning’ refer to issues of the heart; in this exhibition the same famous phrase is applied to issues of the earth. Taking a global perspective this extraordinary exhibition looks at climate change in the 21st century. It asks, what were we thinking when we kept plundering the Earth with little thought for the future and how did we not react to the warning signs sooner. Opening 15 August, 6.30–8.30pm.
