Exmouth residents met at Ocean, Exmouth to share their views on East Devon District Council’s Climate Emergency Plan and join an insightful artist talk with Mike Perry.

Exhibiting artist, Mike Perry, and guest speaker: curator Ben Borthwick, reflect on the themes in Perry's exhibition: Mike Perry Land/Sea.

Mike Perry's work engages with significant and pressing environmental issues, in particular the tension between human activity and interventions in the natural environment, and the fragility of the planet’s ecosystems (be that marine or land). His work has been included in The Black and White Room at The Royal Academy of Arts, curated by artist Cornelia Parker. Mike Perry has also exhibited at the Venice Biennale and in 2015, received a Creative Wales Award from the Arts Council of Wales.

Ben Borthwick is Head of Creative Programme at KARST Creative Arts Space, Plymouth and an independent curator and writer with an expertise in contemporary art, modernism and sound.
