As the world turns: artist talk

About the exhibition

This body of work continues Janet Tavener’s ongoing visual investigation into our planet's sustainability crisis. In this series, she has juxtaposed photographic images which she took in Ilulissat, Greenland (March 2023) of glacial ice from the Quaternary Ice Age (250,000 years ago) with images of submerged plastic flora and fauna.

The work shows the flaws in nature's current survival strategy—the flight of many natural elements from their usual environments, now too hot and inhospitable to sustain them, for the cooler climes of the North and South Poles—against the current and grim reality of melting glacial ice.
