NO NEW WORLDS Art Installation

Created by artist collective Still/Moving and supported by Clyde Docks Preservation Initiative, NO NEW WORLDS Art Installation will be erected at Govan Graving Docks during COP26.

NO NEW WORLDS Art Installation

About NO NEW WORLDS Art Installation

The installation will place an unmissable statement in front of COP 26 delegates directly opposite the main COP delegate zone.

The artwork illuminates the links between climate change and historical and ongoing colonisation, inviting viewers to ask difficult questions about themselves, the legacy of colonialism and its relation to our damaged planet, as well as providing a bright beacon for the future.

The work offers multiple readings, constantly shifting through nine iterations of three words - NEW WORLDS; NO; NEW WORLD; NO WORLD; NEW; NO NEW WORLD; WORLDS; WORLD; NO NEW WORLDS. The resulting effect questions the historic conceit that there ever was a ‘New World’.

Viewing recommended from Kelvinhaugh.
