Sculptor and environmentalist Glenn Morris has created a series of sculptural works as a response to the new Epoch. Morris works with the premise that man believes himself to be all powerful and that society can continue to destroy and control nature with frightening disregard. The notion of time and man’s inability to see himself as a transient organism, dependent on a sustainable relationship with the environment and other creatures, within a geological time frame, informs the works.
The world, we are told, has come to the end of the Holocene Epoch and has entered ‘Anthropo-cene’. The production, by man, of concrete, plastics, radiation and carbon since 1950 is of such enormity that humanity has indelibly stamped its presence on the very geological strata of the planet itself.
The three largest sculptures will be installed with two inside our Main Bar and one in the outside Yard space. Further sculptural work will be installed inside the Cafe Bar in April.
