See sculptor Jon Buck’s new body of work at The Pangolin Gallery
The pieces in Jon Buck’s latest exhibition play on the forms of two ancient objects; bells and boats – warning tocsins and rescue vessels. This exhibition is a celebration of the beauty of biodiversity, but also comes with a caution. While for the last forty or fifty years, many of us have never had it so good, during that same period, the earth has lost more than half of its wild animals (according to WWF).
“The scale of the crisis is so large that we cannot see it, although it is right there in front of us, like a last elephant in the room that is our world,” writer Tim Dee says of Jon Buck’s endeavour to express this anguish. Time of Our Lives is an important solo exhibition that not only celebrates life and its incredible diversity, but also warns us of the future. It couldn’t come at a more poignant time. See the exhibition at The Pangolin London until June 8th.
Monday – Saturday 10am – 6pm
