New Radio 4 Programme – Art of Now: Filth

Screenshot 2020-01-26 at 12.09.32

I’ve been making another programme for Radio 4 over the last few months, this time about artists working with pollution, which is being broadcast tomorrow at 11.30am. In the programme I talk with a number of international contemporary artists to discuss the work they are making in response to pollution and the ‘crisis of filth’. We discuss the relationship between art and activism, going beyond facts and figures to face head on and experience the contamination we are inflicting on the planet. I also talk about a new project I’m developing in collaboration with Lee Berwick called The Space Below, which opens in March. Lee and I are creating a large sound installation underneath the River Thames in the Greenwich Foot Tunnel, which explores the polluted soundscape of the sea.
