Held at London’s Somerset House on Saturday the 29th and Sunday the 29th of January 2017 is the Space To Breathe exhibition. Over the course of the weekend a variety of talks, workshops, installations and more will take place all in response to London’s air pollution crisis. Each creative response is to try and encourage audiences to consider the health affects and dangers of such pollution, and what actions can be taken in order to make cities cleaner and more energy efficient.
Featuring award winning works from Dave Farnham with his three 3D printed lungs and ribs of Caroline, a series of workshops with the King’s College Environmental Research Group, an investigation of inhalations and exhalations by Caroline Wright and a discussion of what’s really in the air we breathe by Chih Chih, this exhibition is one not to miss out on next week.
Space To Breathe is also a part of UTOPIAN 2016: A Year of Imagination and Possibility, a result of a joint initiative of Somerset House, Kings College London and The Cortauld Institute and Gallery to celebrate the 500th year anniversary of of Thomas More’s seminal text.
Curated by Cape Farewell and Shrinking Space, in partnership with King’s College London’s Environmental Research Group.
