Staffordshire St presents falling / fallen / felled an exhibition and book launch exploring the multi-species languages of forests through walking, writing and drawing by artist Kirsty Badenoch with writer Tom Jeffreys.
Badenoch and Jeffreys spent time living and working across two sites of remnant ancient woodland in Scotland earlier this year. Through careful attention to shifting management strategies and lines of ownership, exclusion and extraction, their work explores how power (mis)shapes relationships between people and the land. The exhibition showcases new work across large-scale drawing, paper-based sculptural installation, photography, text, sound, and launches a new collaboratively produced artist book.
This is the first exhibition to emerge from their collaboration that explores the overlapping languages of forests through experimental walking, writing and drawing.The exhibition showcases new work across large-scale drawing, paper-based sculptural installation, photography, text, sound, and a new collaboratively produced artist book. Together, these works address the ecological and political significance of ancient woodlands as sites of entanglement between multiple human and nonhuman bodies and voices.
