Since 2008, the climate change charity Project Pressure has been commissioning world-renowned artists to conduct expeditions to document changes to the world’s vanishing glaciers.
Featuring images from all seven continents, the exhibited works range in scale from the planetary level to the microscopic biological impact, with artistic interpretations giving an unique insight into the world’s cryosphere, its fragile ecosystem, and our changing global climate.
The series of artworks includes artist Peter Funch’s use of vintage postcards as a model for his images of American glaciers to capture the effects of glacial recession; Norfolk + Thymann’s images of part of the Rhône glacier covered in geo-thermal cloth to limit melting; Richard Mosse’s photograph of the ice cave under the Vatnajökull glacier in Iceland; and Noémie Goudal’s large-scale photographic installation mirroring the shifting glacial landscape, printed on biodegradable paper.
The show will open on February 17th 2023 – please join us!
