Deep Rooted is a group exhibition featuring work by eight contemporary artists - Dalziel + Scullion, Anya Gallaccio, Andy Goldsworthy, Andrew Mackenzie, Naomi Mcintosh, Katie Paterson and Hanna Tuulikki. Together, they explore the relationship between people and the natural environment using a variety of media and approaches. The artworks range from a surround sound audio and digital choreography to a sensory experience; from paintings and photographs to hand-crafted objects made from wood. Some of the works reflect on current ecological issues, others explore our fragile coexistence with nature and capture its beauty.
Our relationship with the natural world hangs in a balance, with climate change, increased levels of extinction and large-scale deforestation threatening the existence of our biodiversity. Deep Rooted prompts us to consider our place on Earth and urges us to re-evaluate our actions. The show will leave viewers with a renewed sense of their appreciation of nature, its beauty and importance. Doing nothing, is no longer an option and to help fight this urgent climate crisis, we need to modify some of our deep-rooted behaviours.
