Earth’s soil is both a social and physical phenomenon: we walk upon it, are fed and clothed by it, and battle over it. Continuing a tradition begun in 60s’ earthworks and land art, Art in Soil presents six artist projects furthering the poetics of soil.
Initiated by Soil Science Australia, Art in Soil follows an artist in residency program supporting collaboration amongst artists and soil scientists, focused on raising awareness of soil’s importance to all life on Earth.
Please join us to celebrate the mysterious, uncanny beauty of our “Earth’s ecstatic skin.”
