31 July – 3 October 2021
10am – 4:30pm daily
When working with and not against the elements, artists surrender a portion of creative control to living, organic, or unobserved forces within their environment. This results in work that contains a poetic beauty, even when the natural forces are destructive.
Humanity is currently experiencing destructive natural forces in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasingly dramatic effects of climate change. The title of this exhibition takes its inspiration from a rhetorical question raised by Chris Watson when discussing the challenges of documenting live sound. The wind is present, undeniable; it is our actions that determine the final outcome. Preferred Contact: James
