'Deep Rooted' is a group exhibition featuring work by artists - Dalziel + Scullion, Anya Gallaccio, Andy Goldsworthy, Andrew Mackenzie, Naomi Mcintosh, Katie Paterson and Hanna Tuulikki. Together, they explore the relationship between people and the natural environment using a variety of media and approaches. Some of the works reflect on current ecological issues, others explore our fragile coexistence with nature and capture its beauty.
The artworks in this exhibition all focus on trees, a plant form which sustains the existence of ourselves and other species. Our relationship with the natural world hangs in a balance, with climate change, increased levels of extinction and large-scale deforestation threatening the existence of our biodiversity. For many of us, the pandemic changed our relationship with nature. It led to a growing appreciation of our gardens, allotments, woods, and public parks. Lockdowns, in particular, reminded us just how important access to nature is for our physical and mental wellbeing, underlining the value of protecting it. In order to help fight this urgent climate crisis, we need to modify some of our deep-rooted behaviours.
