Visual Artists Jo Tunmer and Cathy Faithfull began their art collaboration three years ago, inspired by the reporting of human tragedies caused by accelerating climate change. Since they began in 2019 a lot in the world has changed, including a shift in the artists work. At the beginning of the collaboration the work was driven by climate change statistics and data but this has now shifted to incorporate elements of 'time'. The exhibition is thought-provoking and both artists will be in attendance for the duration of the event. The ticketed private preview will be held on Friday 30th September 2022.
