OUR WORLD, OUR CRISIS considers our changing landscapes due to climate change and our increasing population; the tipping points of our natural world and our changing relationship with the world around us. Together it forms an arresting and thought-provoking set of work which is an artistic response to our changing natural world and the climate crisis around us.

Climate Change is the greatest challenge our planet has ever faced. As our landscapes, weather and way of life changes with it, we ask questions about how we live and reflect on the passing of time, our changing landscape and our relationship with it. In this exhibition questions arise at how our places have changed and how we look at our natural world. Works include representations of fires in the Amazon, a hand tufted rug which draws attention to the increase of colossal icebergs, some the size of Greater London, breaking off from Antarctica in ‘calving events’ as a result of climate change; as well as changes to our own UK landscapes such as the threat to our wetlands from urbanisation and perceptions of wetlands as ‘wasted lands’ and the threat to our woodlands from HS2.
Six artists: Tracy Hill, Andrew Warburton, Liadin Cooke, Sarah Duncan, Jemma Gunning and Clare Carter; who are from across the UK, have been selected for this exhibition as they respond to our changing landscapes and our place in the world through their artistic practice.
The run of this exhibition covers World Environment Day which is on the 5th June 2023 and is run by the
United Nations.
