BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE
The existence of climate change has been known since the late 19th century, but it is still talked about as a threat to the future. The summer heatwaves are concrete proof that this is not the case. In recent years, summer temperatures around the world have been breaking records, with higher temperatures year after year.
The Burning Down the House exhibition explores the human relationship with the current state of the world, and the patterns of thinking that have led to it.
The name Burning Down the House is taken from the Talking Heads song of the same name.
The works in the exhibition consist of oil paintings, a series of digitally modified photographs, and two installations.
