Mike Perry: Land/Sea
Preview: Thursday 6 April, 6–8pm Mike Perry will be in conversation with Ben Borthwick, PAC Artistic Director at 7pm
Friday 7th April – Saturday 17th June
Photography exhibition highlighting significant and pressing environmental issues, in particular the effects of human activity on the planet’s fragile ecosystems (be that land or marine). Land/Seaincludes selected groups of work from Perry’s series Môr Plastig (Welsh for ‘plastic sea’), in which the artist collects and forensically photographs plastic objects such as bottles, shoes and packaging washed up on the beaches of West Wales. Perry invites us to consider the environmental impact of consumerism and the erosive power of nature. In his ongoing series Wet Deserts, he considers the negative impact of monocultural land use and over-intensive cultivation, and the process of ‘re-wilding’ by which nature reclaims its biodiversity.
