While the Dust Quickly Falls, was published for Bucak’s titular exhibition at Kunsthaus Dresden in 2022, and considers the relationships between political violence, environmental destruction, and climate change. It moves across disparate geographies in Mediterranean cities connected by the catastrophic impact that conflict and war have had on their ecologies. It dwells on the loss of biodiversity, endangered and extinct plants, humanity’s interdependence on non-human beings, and healing in works ranging from living environment, video, sculpture, mosaic, and sound works. Join us at the gallery for a discussion of both the text and the artist’s practice, with a Q + A session featuring Sophie J Williamson.
