In 2021, Scene Stirling commissioned a cohort of five artists to reflect on the COP26 conference, and how climate change impacts their lives and practice.
Working collectively over a few months, the cohort elected to build an ‘ecosystem’ of ideas, germinating concepts that balance disparate art practices, differing perspectives and contrasting experiences, coming together to create a harmonious whole.
The Scene Stirling Climate Change COP26 Commissions cohort is represented by filmmaker Sean Hall, performance artists Kate Clayton and David Sherry, musician Rory Green, and poet Ojo Taiye, working with each other for the very first time on this occasion, and mentored by artist, curator and peer-educator Jonathan Baxter.
The ‘Creative Ecosystems’ exhibition will be the first time their collective work is publicly shown. The exhibition will feature drawings, poetry, original music and sound work, video, and performance in what will be a uniquely immersive and thought-provoking experience.
