Climate House by Keg de Souza
October 15, 2022 @ 10:00 am - December 11, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Australian artist Keg de Souza transforms Inverleith House – the primary exhibition venue at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh – into ‘Climate House’ to highlight the global risk to biodiversity through an immersive installation, activated as a space for conversation and action.
Keg de Souza has previously had major exhibitions in Melbourne, New York, Vancouver and London and is known for her socially engaged art practice, using mediums such as inflatable and temporary architecture, food, video, text, illustration, mapping and dialogical projects to explore the politics of space. Collaboration is central to de Souza’s practice and the new vision for Inverleith House. ‘Climate House’ will inspire connections between artists, scientists, horticulturists, scholars, activists, entrepreneurs, policymakers and visitors and local communities.
It is supported by Outset Contemporary Art Fund’s Transformative Grant and the Australian Government and the British Council as part of the UK/Australia Season.
