RE·THINKing about the weather?

RE·THINK: Environment, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, SE10 9NF. FREE: open daily 10.00–17.00, Dec 2014 – Spring 2015
Invisible Dust has been collaborating with the National Maritime Museum for their RE·THINK exhibition. As part of ‘Invisible Dust in Museums’ the exhibition is showcasing work from Mariele Neudecker, Adam Chodzko and HighWaterLine Bristol.
The exhibition, on until Spring 2015, will be exploring the timely topic of weather. Why do we worry about the weather? How has the weather affected an event in your life? Has the weather changed in your lifetime? RE·THINK is an exciting opportunity for visitors to reflect on this theme and explore the hidden environmental stories within the Museum’s collection.
On display for the duration of the exhibition will be Mariele Neudecker’s piece ‘Cook and Peary’ (see image). Having spent one month in the remote region of Northwest Greenland as part of her research in 2012, Neudecker’s Arctic project explores the sublime landscape of Greenland and its role in shaping Inuit culture.
Adam Chodzko will be presenting his atmospheric sound instillation ‘Rising’. Co-commissioned with Great North Run Culture, ‘Rising’ is an extraordinary, waterlogged, dreamlike future for a population based around the event of an exodus in the form of a mass run from a flooded city.
Alongside this will be a documentary video of HighWaterLine Bristol by Eve Mosher with Creative Catalyst. The 32-mile long public art work took place in September 2014, where local residents used a sports-pitch marker to demarcate the flood-zones where they live.
