Kurt Jackson: Biodiversity (2021)
Our existence depends on biodiversity; the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink ultimately all requires it.
This book, published to accompany Kurt Jackson's touring exhibition Biodiversity, features a range of contributors including Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Gillian Burke, Richard Mabey, George Monbiot and Mark Cocker.
As we should all be realising, our world is suffering a catastrophic environmental crisis, the likes of which we have never previously witnessed. All life forms have the same entitlement to live as we do and fundamentally they are all individually fascinating, extraordinary and beautiful organisms in their own right.
By being aware of the life we share this planet with we can appreciate it and then hopefully conserve it.
Jackson's Biodiversity exhibition (and this book which accompanies it) illustrates this point through a variety of works made in locations around the UK.
Some locations had a huge range of life forms, some were barren, some dominated by nature, and some by human life. The bird life might be visible, apparent but the various mosses or lichen are often less obvious. Insects can be subtly hidden but the trees are visible.
Under the waters, on a mountain, in a street, in your living room, what lives there?
