The Cape Farewell Project: Art, the Arctic and Climate Change - David Buckland
The Cape Farewell team of artists, writers and scientists has voyaged into the High Arctic on three separate expeditions. This awesomely beautiful environment is melting and our behaviour is causing its demise. The artists’ question how we have evolved to cause this threat and what would constitute a symbiotic relationship with our planet.
David Buckland is a designer, artist and film-maker whose lens-based works have been exhibited in numerous galleries in London, Paris and New York and collected by the National Portrait Gallery, London, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, the Metropolitan Museum, New York and the Getty Collection, Los Angeles amongst others. Since 2000 Buckland has created and now directs the Cape Farewell project, whose ambition is to bring artists, scientists and educators together to collectively address and raise awareness about climate change. From September Cape Farewell begins a three-year residency at the Southbank Centre.
