The Hugh Lane Gallery is pleased to present Our Plundered Planet by American artist Mark Dion. Our Plundered Planet offer commentary on human treatment of the natural environment, tempered with a dose of humour and playfulness. At a time when greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are at historically high levels and the polar glaciers are melting, Dion's work poses the question of human responsibility - What is the relationship between human beings and our biospheres ? Cultural and Capital ecologies - these are the systems Mark Dion observes as intrinsically linked and interactive. This exhibition coincides with EuroMAB 2019 a conference on Biospheres being held in Dublin Castle and Dublin Bay Biosphere Reserve, Ireland from 2 to 5 April 2019.
