WePresent x Serpentine: Groundwork

Groundwork is a collaboration between the Serpentine and WePresent. It explores the extensive research behind five artists’ proposals for Back To Earth, Serpentine’s multi-year project focused on instigating change in response to the climate crisis. Groundwork will act as a series of accessible mini-encyclopaedias with all the references artists use to develop a final artwork. They will go behind-the-scenes on the research the artists have done as part of their project for Back to Earth, in a bid to reveal their processes and inform how the viewer might see the project as a whole when completed. It will involve diving deep into the research of artists such as Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen, Vivienne Westwood, Karrabing Film Collective, Himali Singh Soin and Tabita Rezaire. As part of their project and dedication to making a positive impact regarding the climate crisis, Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen have chosen to highlight the Climate Emergency Fund (CEF). WeTransfer will double any donations made via this link to support their cause. CEF will give 100% of the funds to frontline climate activists campaigning for policy-makers to take radical action. https://wepresent.wetransfer.com/story/serpentine-groundwork-revital-cohen-tuur-van-balen-heavens/
