I am pleased to announce the first of RANE's 'Comprehending Nature' lectures series for this academic year.
Monday 12 October 2009 @ 6pm
The Lecture Theatre, Woodlane Campus,
University College Falmouth
Founder and director of the Israeli Forum for Ecological Art, multi-media artist Shai Zakai, will talk about a site specific installation at The Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World, Haldon Forest Park, Exeter (www.ccanw.co.uk<http://www.ccanw.co.uk> ) which is based on her 14 years’ project.
Shai Zakai is perhaps best known for her seminal work Concrete Creek – the reclamation of a polluted creek as an artwork, 1999-2002 – and describes ecological art as “one of the good ways I know of for mediation between the individual, the place and the decision-makers”.
In defining the eco-artist, Zakai compares this role to that of “a doctor practicing alternative medicine, who would never offer you a painkiller, but would examine the body as a whole; or to a judge, who would send a transgressor to a rehabilitation program rather than to jail; to a philosopher who would always explore multiple versions and variations before he finds that singular insight; to ‘sublime nature’ that often invokes in its beholder magical sensations that are never quite deciphered; wishing to utter our admiration, we feel close to the place and it becomes so precious to us that we want to preserve it.” www.eco-art.co.il <http://www.eco-art.co.il>
RANE's 'Comprehending Nature: Art, Nature & Environment Lectures' are a series of free lectures examining contemporary interpretations of nature from a number of different perspectives. Drawing on knowledge from the visual arts and natural sciences, the speakers set out to provide models that help us think about and conceptualise the natural world.
Entry is free, however there are a limited number of tickets available for members of the public. To reserve your place please reply to this email with your name and the number of seats you require, so you can be added to our door list.
