Experimenta Make Sense artist stimulates talk on climate change

Newcastle artist Andrew Styan has been featured in the Newcastle Herald for his work Catch Your Breath, currently exhibiting as part of the Experimenta Make Sense exhibition.

The article talks specifically about how his work relates to the current conversation on climate change.

He says:

“You can’t just talk about climate change,” he says with the earnesty of a scientist and commitment of an artist. “It’s all the deeper issues that feed into it. Its about emissions, about consumption, about all those other things that go into it.

“My practice is looking for something that is a neutral medium that people can latch on to, and hopefully a space where people can have a conversation about things. The camps are polarised, there’s nothing in the middle … I was hoping to create work to stimulate some sort of conversation.”
