Synopses & Reviews
As revolutionary in form as in content, @earth tells its story in the language of photomontage, one that requires no translation to be understood the world over. Its also the medium long favored by radical artists like Peter Kennard, whose work demonstrates the important role art can play in political discourse. At turns challenging, unsettling, and poignant, these seven chapters combine new works made with Tarek Salhany with iconic images from throughout Kennards 40-year career. Together they create a moving statement about the impending eco-crisis, the arms race, war, and the injustices of the power structures dominating todays world.
