EARTH EATERS is an alternative name for the condition Geophagia - the practice in humans and animals of eating earth or more specifically the clay and mineral content within it. This exhibition will explore soil’s potential role in prevention of climate change, the artistic use of soil/earth as medium, and calls on us to readdress and promote the health of the vital substance that we take for granted. The works in EARTH EATERS will question what is at stake in the ecological crises of the 21st century and will challenge the conventional systems of classification, suggesting a worldview that strives to dislocate humans from their assumed position of centrality and superiority as knowers and actors in the world.

Kelly Sweeney: Witches, Scamps and Things
Co-curated by Linda Rocco
Opening night: Tuesday 27th October | 5-9pm
Exhibition: 28th October - 8th November 2020
Full programme TBA
Witches, Scamps and Things is an invitation to an undisclosed domain, temporarily inhabited by the artist’s increasingly personal pantheon of beings. An archetypal ecosystem is evolving; what once hummed with florescence is now dirtied and soiled. And they revel in it.
The exhibition and associated programme is supported using public funding by the
National Lottery through Arts Council England.
