Conversation accompanying the exhibition ‘Future Scenarios’ with Lena Dobrowolska & Teo Ormond-Skeaping
Led by Aleksandra Jach
Lena Dobrowolska and Teo Ormond-Skeaping are an artist duo working with a combination of media, including documentary photography, artists’ films, virtual reality, and installation. Their practice is research-led. Since 2012, Dobrowolska and Ormond-Skeaping have been working on projects concerned with climate change and the Anthropocene, or, to use the artists’ preferred term, the Capitalocene. Their works document human vulnerability to, and responsibility for, climate change, as well as resilience and adaptation efforts, through an exploration of poverty, development, and environmental catastrophe, all as a means of envisioning speculative scenarios of climate change–impacted futures. In their ongoing work, they examine the ethics and methodologies of documentary representation with specific case studies relating to climate change, development, environmental degradation, human rights, and geopolitics.
Aleksandra Jach is a curator and facilitator. Currently a freelancer, she worked for many years at the Museum of Art in Łódź. A primary issue she is engaged with is how to communicate the reality of the climate crisis. She is working on a film about energy conversions.
