Fragile Earth (THG Project Space)
14 January 2023 to 4 March 2023
A new exhibition of work by artist Sally Baldwin
Fragile Earth is a body of work evoking natural forms such as trees, pods, flowers, insects, sea life, water. The materials used - recycled paper, handmade paper, silk waste, silk, cotton scrim - are ghostly, white and ephemeral, suggesting delicate, fragile, finely balanced and vulnerable landscapes.
The work has its origins during the first lockdown when it felt as if the world as we knew it was collapsing – not only was the environment under extraordinary threat, with climate change and habitat loss demonstrated clearly all around us, but society too was crumbling because of a rampaging virus.
The pieces in the Fragile Earth collection reflect some of the issues involved in our current environmental crisis.
