Julia Champtaloup, ‘Ripple kelp’ 2019, photographic print.
On Wednesday 4 December, please join us for the pop-up opening of Julia Champtaloup’s virtual tour exhibition ‘Souvenirs for the Future’. This exhibition will be on display for one evening only and subsequently accessible through our virtual tour technology.
‘Souvenirs for the Future’ is an immersive nature experience presented as a series of photographic images and lightboxes. While presented as aesthetic windows, Julia’s images are intended to be viewed as a pathway through nature and a record of walks in wild and not-so-wild places.
The show brings awareness to the urgency of planting for increased biodiversity, growing seaweed to help cool and clean up oceans, and encouraging movements to plant and protect landscape and improve local ecologies. Alongside views into underwater worlds of carbon-sequestering seaweeds, Julia’s photographs depict micro ecosystems of varying landscapes that are also vital habitats for birds, insects and marine life.
