What's On

Distorted Truths

Artist Lea Kannar-Lichtenberger examines how the global is affected by the local, how the coveted ‘bucket list’ has a cost that may be too great for the Utopian holiday destination.

Distorted Truths is an exhibition that examines the intersection between our contemporary lives and their global effect. 

Exploring the role of contemporary society in Climate Change and how a remote place such as Deception Island, Antarctica is being affected. Lea Kannar-Lichtenberger is an artist traveller, who works to create art that investigates the impact of current society trends and tourism on sensitive ecosystems and island communities through immersive residencies or eco-tourism. 

Distorted Truths is an exploration of the questions that surround our very presence within these landscapes and in this instance the perceived pristine environment and Antarctic Adventure.

‘Lea Kannar-Lichtenberger takes this seriously, she thinks through relationships between the human and non-human, she collapses distinctions between the here and over there and calls for a realisation that our actions in this world are never inconsequential.’ Dr Laetitia Wilson
