Here & There is an exhibition reflecting on the fascinating birds that rely on the fragile coastal and wetland habitats, the long distance travellers and the residents — many of which undertake spectacular and seemingly impossible migration journeys.
Urban sprawl, shrinking habitats and increasing disturbance are just some of the challenges facing these birds. This exhibition seeks to highlight these risks and threats and the importance of preserving the environments so critical to their existence and survival, and the important and irreplaceable role they play in our interconnected natural systems. The works draw on contemporary urban culture and imagery presented as paintings, drawings, collage and mixed media pieces.
