Invisible Dust & Royal Museum’s Greenwich invite you to join us for a performance and drinks to celebrate being part of RE•THINK Environment.
The London Premiere of Rising by Adam Chodzko will be performed by theatre, film and television actress Gretchen Egolf.
Rising depicts an extraordinary, waterlogged, science-fiction future, where people have adapted physically and psychologically to their increasingly aquatic environment of flash flooding and rising water levels brought about through climate change.
Chodzko’s practice explores fact through enigmatic rumours, extraordinary stories and unstable, intricate mythologies illuminating ideas that explore an uncertain future. With 25 years of practice relating to an exploration of our collective conscious and unconscious actions and thoughts in order to make artworks as propositions for our potential realities.
Chodzko has shown extensively, nationally and internationally, including at Tate Britain and the Royal Academy, London and the Venice Biennale.
Gretchen Egolf is an American actor, now living and working in the UK. She has worked extensively in television, film, and theatre.
Rising is co-commissioned by Great North Run Culture and Invisible Dust.
The event Rising Water on April 11th will begin with a discussion (sorry the talk is now sold out) exploring the contribution artists can make to our understanding of flooding, the oceans and climate change. On the panel will be artists Mariele Neudecker, Tamsin Relly and Adam Chodzko chaired by Alice Sharp, Director of Invisible Dust.
The RE•THINK gallery at the National Maritime Museum has been showcasing Invisible Dust artworks including those on the Arctic, Deep Sea and flooding by Mariele Nuedecker, Adam Chodzko and HighWaterLine by Eve Mosher, on until May 2015
