Art Bridge Emergents and Westonbirt Arboretum present "The Lungs of the Earth", an exhibition exploring the critical connection between humans and trees.
Since May 2020 the Art Bridge Emergents artists have been working with artist in residence Deb Hoy, and through a series of workshops looking at the critical connection between humans and trees they have created an exhibition of work and a brand new installation entitled Lungs of the Earth based in Silk Wood at Westonbirt Arboretum.
The Lungs of the Earth installation is based on the exchange of air from trees to lungs, mirroring the alveoli in lungs where oxygen enters the body and carbon dioxide is expelled. It poses the question to the viewer, are they looking at a human lung or the branches of trees overlapping in a forest? The installation will be in place until May 2021 for visitors to engage with and reflect on the connection they have with trees.
The Art Bridge Emergents exhibition has unfortunately had to be postponed to 2021 but through the wonder of technology Art Shape are thrilled to be able to bring this diverse and glorious exhibition of painting, mixed media, drawing and installation online.
