Amy M. Youngs
|The aphorism “we are all in this together” has been used during the Covid-19 pandemic to the point of cliche but it is still only humans we are including in the “we” mentioned. Western culture has seen humans as separate from nature but a global pandemic has reminded us that all life is connected, from animals to viruses, and all have an instinct for survival. The work in this show explores our interconnectedness, with artists exploring the junctions of science and art through work with bacteria, animals, and nature.|
