Art and the Natural Environment (Art & Design)

by PaulCrowther (Author)


Exploring how artists can bring environmental issues into focus and increase awareness of natural space through artistic interventions, this issue includes Mierle Laderman Ukeles' work as artist-in-residence with the New York City Department of Sanitation; Wolfgang Laib's characteristic pollen and beeswax installations; the special ecological garden created by the Liss Ard Foundation in Southern Ireland which includes James Turrell's Sky Garden; Ian Hamilton-Finlay's use of historical garden forms at Little Sparta in Scotland and a visual and critical presentation of the TICKON project in Denmark - where artists including Alan Sonfist, Nils Udo, Andy Goldsworthy, Giuliano Mauri, Chris Dury and David Nash have been working - which aims for collaboration between artists, environmentalists, ecologists and the community in turning ecological issues into aesthetic issues.
