Presented in association with Perth Festival
Polarity: Fire & Ice is an exercise in contemporary truth telling. Through the immersive film and photographic works of artists living in Australia, Canada and the Arctic, the exhibition considers the climate catastrophe – from the melting ice caps of the Arctic to devastating summer fires that have become commonplace in Australia. It connects our local decisions to global impacts, and offers poetic, salient and challenging artistic reflections on the climate emergency and our shared futures. Importantly it considers knowledges held by First Peoples around the world as central to understanding our changing climate and in contributing to solutions founded in care for land and waters.
