under/currents
Sarita Zaleha

This project explores the interaction between the Arctic as a specific place impacted by rising
temperatures and human attempts to observe, control, and preserve the environment. In under/currents visitors are drawn to aspects of experience that are often overlooked: movement in the air, alterations in smell, and the perception of time. The work endeavors to dig into certain layers of human experience of the environment through encouraging a hyperawareness of anxieties around climate change and attempts to self-soothe through encounters with the natural world. While attuning visitors to subtle sensory perceptions in their surroundings and simultaneously prompting them to think about a geographic area where some of the most dramatic of these changes are occurring, under/currents invites a tension between the immediacy of climate change and its accumulated effects.

Presented by Bolivar Art Gallery, this exhibition was created with support from Northern Lights.mn and the Jerome Foundation.
