VISIT THE COLLECTION…Acquisition note
Georgina Campbell is a very accomplished artist and photographer, whose works have been widely exhibited. This artwork is very timely for the issue it addresses – global warming/climate change, and also very innovative and accessible. The connection between the materiality and structure of the folded form lends itself to the subject matter on many levels (shape mimicking the shape of icebergs, the folding is relatable and alludes to the uncertain and unknowable future, etc.)
Most viewers will recognise the object that this artwork has been folded to look like, and instantly enjoy and understand the connotations of this object that playfully pretends to tell your fortune or future. It should be displayed as an accessible educational piece to introduce children (and adults!) to the idea that art can be playful, while alluding to its deeper meaning.
