Event Details

‘I will learn to sit with you and I will learn to listen’ is a plea for gentle, honest dialogue around climate change. At first glance the installation, viewed from the doorway of the Blackadder Aisle in Glasgow Cathedral, appears to be a jumble of chairs but on closer observation the installation reveals itself as a field of sculptural forms. Each form consists of a pair of chairs, symbolising unequal power relationships among individuals, communities and nations, highlighting our communal failure to listen to one another.

During COP26, the artists are reweaving one pair of chairs in an alternative material. When completed, the chairs will be positioned facing each other. Thus enabling a conversation of equals and inviting a renewed commitment to listen to the voices of others in order to bring about change that will enable social justice and climate justice to be realised.
