Mike Perry Land/Sea

Land/​Sea is a major solo exhi­bi­tion by Wales-based artist Mike Per­ry bring­ing togeth­er two recent bod­ies of work: Wet Deserts and Môr Plastig.

Mike Perry is an artist whose work engages with significant and pressing environmental issues, in particular the tension between human activity and interventions in the natural environment, and the fragility of the planet’s ecosystems (be that marine or land)

Wet Deserts focuses on mundane and typically overlooked locations in Britain, often in places referred to as areas of natural beauty, our national parks, but where there is clear evidence of man’s impact. Môr Plastig (Welsh for ‘plastic sea’), an ongoing body of work that classifies objects washed up by the sea into groupings - Bottles, Shoes, Grids, capturing the intriguing surface detail by using a high-resolution camera.

Curated by Mike Perry and Thelma Hulbert Gallery, adapted from Ffotogallery/Touring exhibition Land/ Sea originated by David Drake, Director of Ffotogallery and Ben Borthwick. Delivered in partnership with LED. Supported by Arts Council England and East Devon District Council Climate Emergency Fund.
