Artist Julie Brook journeys to the wildest and most remote landscapes on earth, creating work that is not only inspired by the land but cut from it. For the Firestacks, her most recent series, created in the Hebrides, Brook assembles natural elements—water, stone and fire—to create a tidal work that expresses the vital tension between gravity and time, through the seasons.
Writer Robert Macfarlane’s (The Wild Places, Landmarks, Underland) engagement with wilderness is similarly immersive, conjuring landscapes, seas and underground spaces with a poet’s eye and a scholar’s tongue.
As Brook debuts her new work in Pangolin’s new exhibition for Nature Unwrapped on the gallery level at Kings Place, she and Macfarlane discuss the elemental forces at play in her work and preview her films.
Please note there will be no interval.
