In 2009 (pre Copenhagen), climate change was in the news. But it was soon overtaken by the much more tangible and immediate threat symbolised by the financial crisis.
Exploring our understanding of the relationship between climate change and capitalism, Ellie will spend the week putting into perspective two very different yet interconnected crises. This will culminate in a spectacle at the end of the festival (Saturday 6pm) with the aim of redressing the balance and refocusing the debate.
Ellie Harrison’s practice emerges from her continual attempt to strike-a-balance between the roles of ‘artist’, ‘activist’ and ‘administrator’.
She uses skills and strategies drawn from each of these perspectives to create playful and engaging work, in-and-out of art world contexts, which aims to expose and challenge the systems which control and rule over our lives, be they political, ethical, social, economic, technological or infrastructural.
Her work takes a variety of forms including performance spectacles, interactive installations, collaborative projects, political campaigns, media interventions, lectures, websites and coach trips.
