British Art Show 9 Aberdeen Installation Images

 

Aberdeen’s presentation centres on exploring different forms of knowledge – including spirituality – to heal the earth, to resist the injustices of extractivism, and to develop  non-exploitative ways of living with the non-human. Aberdeen, known as the ‘Granite City’ due to its status as the UK’s biggest supplier of granite, is in the midst of a complex transition from its economic reliance on the oil and gas industry towards a shift to green energy production. This iteration of BAS9 proposes to put care at the heart of our relationship with nature, and all beings, moving away from the hierarchical interaction that puts humans first. Here is a selection of installation images from the British Art Show 9 in Aberdeen.
