On the shoreline
Across the Weekend
Symbolically installed on the shifting tideline of South Beach, Drowning Worlds are a powerful series of photographic works that explore the effects of climate change in an intimate way, taking us beyond faceless statistics and into the individual experiences of its victims.
Since 2007, Mendel’s work has documented the experiences of those who have experienced catastrophic environmental damage, working with them to create an image in their flooded homes.
As well as the exhibition on the beach, a number of local and regional environmental group will gather with more of Mendel’s work at 13:30 on Sunday, as a quiet act of climate protest. Before this, Mendel will be speaking as part of our Ideas on the Green line up with a conversation titled Flood/Fire.
