Finding Balance in 2021

Extraction: Art on the Edge of the Abyss

With environmental stewardship close to our hearts, we are pleased to be participating in EXTRACTION: Art on the Edge of the Abyss a multimedia, multi-venue, cross-border art intervention which seeks to provoke societal change by exposing and interrogating the negative social and environmental consequences of industrialized natural resource extraction.

A six page article about our 2020 installation You are the Tree was published in the Extraction Catalog & Exhibition Guide, section 5, pages 556–561.

New projects addressing extraction issues include:

Kent Manske & Nanette Wylde, From this Earth, 2020

From this Earth is a collaborative artist’s book written, and produced while sheltering-in-place during the 2020 pandemic and while wildfires raged across California. It is a story of transformation. An individual journeys through a devastated landscape seeking relief, motivated by an inner impetus. Text by Nanette Wylde.
