Mike Perry Land / Sea (THG)

20 May 2021 to 14 August 2021

Land/Sea (Tir/Môr) is a major solo exhibition by Wales-based artist Mike Perry spearheading East Devon’s new Climate campaign - Climate Conversations

Artist Mike Perry focuses our attention on the growing environmental crisis at home, probing questions about our activity and inactivity. The works spark conversation bringing contemporary environmental issues to our attention, not in a campaigning, emotionally charged way, but through analytical examination and poetic reflection, pulling us into a very personal contemplation.

Land/Sea brings together two recent bodies of work: Wet Deserts and Mor Plastig.

Wet Deserts focuses on mundane and typically overlooked locations in Britain, often in places referred to as areas of natural beauty, our national parks, but where there is clear evidence of man’s impact. Môr Plastig (Welsh for ‘plastic sea’), an ongoing body of work that classifies objects washed up by the sea into groupings - Bottles, Shoes, Grids, capturing the intriguing surface detail by using a high-resolution camera. 

Curated by Mike Perry and Thelma Hulbert Gallery, adapted from Ffotogallery/Touring exhibition Land/ Sea originated by David Drake, Director of Ffotogallery and Ben Borthwick. Delivered in partnership with LED. Supported by Arts Council England and East Devon District Council Climate Emergency Fund.

Sound pieceMike talks about his work, the Welsh landscape, and the complex issues which surround it, against a backdrop of sound collected and performed in the environment by composer Matthew Lovett.
