Heather and Ivan Morrison

165alt.jpg

Heather and Ivan Morison’s practice seem to revolve around the notion of change and how difficult we seem to gin this in times of struggle. This way thinking presented the opportunity for the artists to investigate ideas around rootedness and transformation further, as well as to engage explicitly in a dialogue about redefining the limitations of where, and how, it is possible for artists to work. I can relate to Heather and Ivan Morrison’s work, particularly in the images you see above because of the way they also see the effects of environmental degradation at present. I believe the artworks they’ve created here are a visual representation of how what we will exist, creating habitats which we will inhabit as a last resource of humanity, reverting back to an earlier, less developed stage in order to progress.
