    Event description

    Join us for a performance by Katie Paterson 'To Burn, Forest, Fire' followed by a curatorial tour of Garden at the End of Time.

    To Burn, Forest, Fire explores the scent of the first-ever forest on earth, and the scent of the last forest of the age of the climate crisis through the creation of bespoke incense sticks. Using scent to explore these forests the artwork employs the senses to cultivate an intimate, intuitive experience that aims to transport participants through time as a reminder of the increasing levels of extinction caused by humanity. 

    Collaborating with scientists and researchers across the world, Katie Paterson’s projects consider our place on Earth in the context of geological time and change. Her artworks make use of sophisticated technologies and specialist expertise to stage intimate, poetic and philosophical engagements between people and their natural environment. Combining a Romantic sensibility with a research-based approach, conceptual rigour and coolly minimalist presentation, her work collapses the distance between the viewer and the most distant edges of time and the cosmos.
