“Waterborne: A Climate Art Exhibition” – this will be an exhibition featuring artworks made by students from HUMN2056 Climate Change Literature and Culture. The students draw on climate literacy and artist mentorship to make artworks from upcycled marine waste and raise awareness of the contemporary water crisis facing humanity.
The exhibition title “waterborne 水生” invokes the double meaning of water as the communicator and facilitator of all life on earth, and as the power vector for toxic fluidity and vulnerability under anthropocentrism. We seek to go beyond a fear-based approach to climate narrative to explore hydro-visions of green, symbiotic futures. Our exhibition poster reflects the amorphous meanings of watery matter, a pop-art rendering of shimmering water that could also be the iridescent surface of a plastic bag.
Our exhibition opening event is on Friday 18 Nov 4:30-6 pm, TriAngle Space, Shaw Campus, HKBU and we would love to have you there! Please mark the day and come to share your support!
