December 2014 - June 2015
National Maritime Museum, London, UK
Invisible Dust worked with the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich to exhibit works by artists Mariele Neudecker, Adam Chodzko and Eve Mosher in the museums’ RE·THINK space. It was the first time the artworks were shown in London and the intervention was part of the ‘Invisible Dust in Museums’ programme.
RE·THINK space was an exciting space at the National Maritime Museum, giving visitors the opportunity to explore, discover and reflect on the themes of the museum, and create responses within the gallery. 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 Environment’ asked visitors such questions and revealed the hidden environmental stories within the museum’s collection.
Mariele Neudecker exhibited one of her new tank works ‘Cook and Peary’ 2013, alongside photographs and artefacts that she collected on her expedition to Greenland with inuit hunters.
Filmmaker Adam Chodzko presented ‘Rising’ the atmospheric audio work 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. Originally inspired by the Great North Run, in ‘Rising‘ the runners have adapted physically and psychologically to their increasingly aquatic environment of flash flooding and rising water levels brought about through climate change. A documentary video of HighWaterLine Bristol by Eve Mosher with Creative Catalysts, where local residents drew a 32 mile chalk line to represent future flooding levels of Bristol, was also part of the exhibition.
