In the West, the human lifespan averages eighty to ninety years yet we live as though we are
immortal. “Relics of Future’s Past” deals with our human inability to become aware of our limited
lifespan and the consequences of our actions. We take for granted technological advancement and
believe progress is linear, it can only get better.
Not so. Recent events have ushered in notions of the apocalyptic: Covid, war,
economic crisis, fires and floods caused by climate emergency, immigration, Brexit, the greed and
corruption of big business and politicians.
In our Anthropocene age, we have the power to make or break our civilization. In this
exhibition, through a mix of media, from paint and canvas to the Metaverse and NFT’s the artists deal
with the idea of leaving things behind for future generations. What will be our Relics of Future’s Past?
