Abstract

Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir and Mark Wilson conduct their collaborative practice from bases in the north of England and Reykjavík, Iceland. With a strong research grounding, their socially engaged projects explore contemporary relationships between human and non-human animals in the contexts of history, culture and the environment. The practice sets out to challenge anthropocentric systems of thought that sanction loss through representation of the other, proposing instead alternative tropes of “parities in meeting.” Their work is installation based, using objects, text, photography and video. This was a talk presented as part of the 'How can art advance sustainability? symposium which took place on 3 October 2014 at Arizona State University Art Museum.
