Sculpture and Climate Emergency
Introduction to Sculpture Network XV. International Forum in Málaga
We are delighted to announce our XV. International Forum "Sculpture and Climate Emergency" in Málaga ES on 5-7 October 2023, which is curated by Maria Gracia de Pedro ES and Amparo López Corral ES. Our International Forum will explore the transformative power of art and sustainable practices in times of climate change!
As a prelude to the International Forum, Yke Prins NL, artist and board member, will introduce the program of the Forum, and two members will highlight their projects related to sustainability and climate change.
Caroline Kampfraath NL speaks about two installations addressing water pollution, and deforestation. In The Trees Weep upon Us, We’ll be Fossils by Then, 2017, which was on show at the Biennial of Venice, the material wood resin embodies the hope of repair. Plants secrete resins for their protective benefits in response to injury. Even is mankind is lost, the earth will survive.
How do we think about climate change? Marek Wolynski PL/UK, curator and coordinator of Sculpture Network, highlights the interactive installation of AlanJames Burns IE. Immersive in climate change sounds and stories, visitors are turned into active participants, whose brain activity is visualized in real time.
