Artists we can look into:
Hildegarde of Bingen
Twelfth-Century Christian mystic Hildegaarde of Bingen was an ecological thinker – she understood the universe as an entity, each part penetrated by the essence of the whole and saw a radiance in creation – in the greening of the earth, the sprouting of seeds, and blossoming of plants. She called this verdant fecundity Viriditas, a ‘greening’ of the planet that is infused with a spiritual principle and a healing potential that can bring about planetary attunement.
Adam Chodzko is an artist working across media, exploring our conscious and unconscious behaviour, social relations and collective imaginations through artworks that are propositions for aberrant forms of ‘social media’.
Andrea Büttner’s (b. 1972, Stuttgart, Germany) conceptually-oriented practice alternates between forms like the woodcut, which privilege the use of the hand and the rough interaction of materials, and research-based projects that delineate the broader contexts in which her ideas circulate.
