More Information

Further work shown in the gallery includes items from Refuge Wear (1992-98) and Body Architecture (1994-98): portable architecture, lightweight and autonomous structures raising issues of survival.

Inspired by their global research trips, the Ortas’ collaborative practice explores some of the 21st century’s most pressing issues surrounding the environment and sustainable development, habitat and community, mobility, migration and climate change.

A programme of associated events, mentoring opportunities for young artists and a YSP limited edition plate accompanies the exhibition.
