Deep Roots presents a series of works by six of the most established international artists who have engaged with soils over many years. It ranges from previously unseen work by Mel Chin, who uses plants to extract heavy metals from contaminated land, to that of Claire Pentecost who has refashioned soil into the shape of gold ingots to reflect its true worth. Individual works by seven British artists working with soils today are also shown.
This special event will consist of a 30 minute talk - The Artist and Nature - and a 30 minute walk and talk around the exhibition with Clive Adams, Director of Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World (CCANW).
