Glacial Narratives

Glacial Narratives: a report from the Arctic

An exhibition about Arctic Ice – its existence, its disappearance, its history and its future.

“The world will never starve for want of wonders; but only for want of wonder. … “

– G.K. Chesterton

Artists Mary Walters, Elizabeth Bourne, Adam Sebire & Martin Disley present a new Glacial Narrative – from 4 artists who have spent considerable time in Arctic environments, and have developed a complementary series of works that not only raise awareness of the wonder of ice as a material, but also ask questions about its disappearance. We do not claim to have answers, but we know that we have a responsibility to future generations to question our actions, and to contribute in any ways that our art forms allow.
