We find ourselves in a region between Mars – a planet Richardson previously visited in the monumental installation, ‘Mariner 9’ – and Jupiter…When we return, we’re left with the realisation that while our species’ behaviour is responsible for the current global extinction event, it’s equally capable of producing uniquely imaginative visions. Art alone can’t save the world but the creation of art may very well be considered as the yin to our destructive yang.” Alexandra Crouwers

The Amelia

Kelly Richardson – Leviathan
February 3 – May 23, 2023
Tunbridge Wells, UK

Leviathan returns to the UK with a timely solo exhibition at The Amelia. The work draws on Richardson’s distinct art practice which focusses on ideas around conservation and a careful observation of the effects of humanity on the planet… The staging of Leviathan at The Amelia Scott comes at a significant time historically, in reflection of growing global climate concerns and places Tunbridge Wells once again at the centre of environmental and conservation debates.

‘Unsigned’ by Operator & Anika Meier
A collection of 100 artist signatures
Published: September 14, 2022

“…the addition of a woman’s signature can devalue artwork to the extent that female artists are more likely to leave their work unsigned.” (Helen Gorrill) The collection reverses the current negative value of the signatures through their transformation into artworks themselves. Unsigned is a conceptual artwork raising the symbolic and literal value of women and non-binary artists’ signatures.

Pau Waelder interviews Kelly Richardson
Published: April, 2022

Beauty invites viewers to engage with otherwise very difficult subject. Tragedy in the work is located in the truth of what we’ve wrought, the conditions within which we now find ourselves, and the urgent call for us to collectively face it in order to address it. After decades of scientific warnings riddled with predictions of what life might be like in the future, our path hasn’t changed course.

Lyn Richards reviews Halcyon Fog at KAG
Published: March 10, 2022

Richardson points out the hubris in our fantasy of human specialness, our refusal to acknowledge we’re simply one of many species within the world’s astonishing web of life, and our denial that whatever we do to the environment, we do to ourselves as well. Richardson courts irony by turning the same digital media that potently…
