Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky explores nature transformed through industry. Philosophically and politically charged, 'Un_Earthed' reveals the unsustainability of our parasitical relationship to the Earth and its natural resources.
Burtynsky’s images are meant as metaphors to the dilemma of our modern existence; they search for a dialogue between attraction and repulsion, seduction and fear.
The exhibition features a series of major photographs from the United States, Canada, Azerbaijan and Bangladesh. Spanning ten years practice, 'Un_Earthed' also includes the artist’s acclaimed feature film, Manufactured Landscapes.
Burtynsky’s remarkable photographic depictions of global industrial landscapes are included in the collections of over fifty major museums around the world. Hissecond film, Watermark, was named “Best Canadian Film” by the Toronto Film Critics Association in 2014.
