The exhibition will include sculptural and installation based art, with poetry, performance art, and workshops. The event is free and open for all to celebrate the Earth and this particular spot of nature within central Norwich.
‘Return to Nature’ will run from 1 – 4 pm at the Dell on Earlham Road in Norwich, and will include a timed programme of performance art, poetry and free art workshops. The event is free and open for all, to encourage use of this beautiful spot of nature within central Norwich, and to celebrate our wonderful planet, raising awareness in how our actions influence the environment.
Elizabeth Fleur Willis and Adam Popli, (two of The Earth Issue’s team members) are honoured to be representing The Earth Issue, our mission, and share environmental concerns through performance art.
Copies of The Earth Issue 001 will be available to buy on the day.
ADAM POPLI uses art as a form of communication, challenging the audience to think deeply about man's relationship with mother earth. Plastics, polystyrene, old electronic equipment, are examples of the waste materials which are fundamentally changing our natural landscape. Popli uses storytelling across various mediums to translate a dialogue of visual conversation, through performance art and immersive installations.
ELIZABETH FLEUR WILLIS is a London based poet, photographer, painter and curator. Through self-expression and exploration Willis aims to provoke awareness on many social issues from selfie culture and narcissism to climate change. She often creates fictional narratives to draw parallels to our lived experience.
