‘The Very Fire They Sit Beside’
Coal is the biggest contributor to anthropogenic climate change and the current climate crisis.
In Europe, many countries still heavily rely on coal for their energy needs, with over
250 coal fired power plants spread across the continent.
Germany - often seen as the green leader in Europe - still relies on coal for 35% of it’s sizeable energy needs.
Seven of the top ten single carbon emitters in Europe are German coal fired power plants.
Poland is home to Bełchatów, the world’s largest brown coal fired power plant.
It alone has the carbon emissions equivalent to that of New Zealand.
Across the Balkans new Chinese funded coal power plants are under construction.
For Europe to help the world reach the Paris Climate Agreement’s targets
and limit global warming to under 2 degrees there is clearly a lot of work to be done...
Shot throughout Europe in collaboration with environmental law charity Client Earth,
this ongoing work documents the continued presence of coal on the continent
and the impact it has on the environment and people who live beside it.
For exhibit in 2020.

“A quiet walk in the gently rolling hills of the Vast Goth Land, along the shore of Lake Hornborgasjön
becomes first an opportunity for a wry study, then a gentle lyric on normal human oddity,
then a play on the observer observed and ultimately a narrative about form and space.”
