L'exposition tire son nom de la Barrière de Larsen de l'Antarctique. En 2002, une partie de ce vaste plateau est tombé dans la mer. Les images satellite de cet événement ont permis une prise de conscience publique du réchauffement climatique et la fonte des glaces. Mais qu'est-il arrivé à cette eau fondue ?

The exhibition, timed to coincide with the United Nation’s Climate Change Summit in Paris, considers how relatively uncharted parts of the world – the Polar regions and the deep seas – might be (mis) represented, and how art can o er us a way to engage with and witness something as large and di cult to grasp as climate change or marine pollution.

The show includes pieces such as Bryndis Snaebjornsdottir and Mark Wilson’s nanoq: at out and bluesome, which archives the taxidermied polar bears in the UK’s public and private collections; Tania Kovats’ Where Seas Meet; Lucy + Jorge Orta’s Ortawater project about water; and Heather Ackroyd and Dan Harvey’s Crystal Fish. The centrepiece of the exhibition is an ocean-going raft designed and created by a team of Wimbledon students collectively named the ‘Raftonauts’.
