Event Details

Drawing Air (2020-21) focuses on the life of Ella Roberta Adoo-Kissi-Debrah. Living in South East London UK, Ella, a bright, sporty & musical child, developed life threatening asthma at six, and died at the age of nine. Following a landmark legal case, she has since become the first person in the world to have air pollution recognised as a cause of death.

Artist Gina Allen worked with Ella’s family to produce a series of images of Ella, using dirt collected from the exhausts and wheels of cars, inviting us to consider the human impacts of air pollution, and while acknowledging the sources of air pollution are many and various, the material used invites us to question how we can act to improve the quality of the air we breathe.
