Featuring Raluca Iancu, Emmy Lingscheit, Ashton Ludden, Jennifer Scheuer, and Jordan Thornton
What constitutes a disaster and what makes it natural? Is a natural disaster when the earth is negatively affected or when the environment is the cause of the distress? “Natural” is defined as something not made or caused by humankind, creating a divide between humans and nature. Are human beings not mammals, after all, consequently, a part of fauna? What then of all of humankind’s actions? Are these activities “natural” and, if they are, are they inherently catastrophic?
The works in this exhibition examine different types of disaster, on different scales, both man-made and not. What is the aftermath of disaster and how do we deal with it? In the wake of tragedy, do we sink or swim?
