Artwork by Jane Rushton

Wednesday 25 April – Saturday 1 September | Scott Polar Research Institute, Department of Geography, University of Cambridge 

Recently Jane Rushton’s focus has been on remote Northern areas including the Arctic, where she has undertaken extended field trips, sometimes with scientists. The Arctic environment is emblematic in terms of current concerns with climate change, and it provides the focus of much scientific work that tries to understand the processes at play, and their significance. Her work reflects her interest in drawing on the knowledge and methodologies of science as a means of expanding her approach to material investigations, with the ultimate aim of making visually poetic work that provokes a different type of engagement: of seeing, valuing, knowing and understanding.
