Abstract

Duration 45 minutes, three screen video and multi-channel video installation.

Topologies of Air, a major new art commission by artist Shona Illingworth, will examine the impact of geopolitical, technological and climate change on airspace and will challenge the narrow terms by which it is currently represented and defined in culture and in law.

Topologies of Air will bring into dialogue representations from wide and diverse areas of expertise such as international law, including air and space law; human rights; earth and life sciences; technology; neuropsychology; cognitive neuroscience; cultural studies; sociology; art; architecture; politics; theology; philosophy; environmental studies and economics, with lived experience and NGOs, in a unique integration between art practice and the legal preparation for the creation of a new human right. Within a rapidly changing world, this major new commission will present a dynamic and challenging series of artworks, alive to the complex and changing parameters and contexts involved in making the case for this new and vital human right.
