Mosses and Marshes
1st to 30th October 2021
An exhibition of video, sound, prints and paintings by artists Andrew Howe (Shropshire, UK) and Kim V. Goldsmith (NSW, Australia) from their collaborative Mosses and Marshes project.
The Mosses and Marshes project spans two countries, both with Ramsar listed wetlands of international importance. It brings together artists, land managers and scientists to reimagine the future of these landscapes and the place they have in our communities.
Andrew Howe and Kim V. Goldsmith began working together via the international art programme, Arts Territory Exchange. They each researched and made many visits to make field recordings in their respective wetlands at the Fenn’s, Whixall and Bettisfield Mosses (UK) and Macquarie Marshes (Australia). Their individual and collaborative work reflects local differences and shared global challenges for these fragile environments on opposite sides of the planet.
Exhibition launch evening: Friday 1st October, 6-8pm.
