Matterlurgy Collaboration

Matterlurgy Collaboration

Matterlurgy is an ongoing collaboration between Wright and artist Helena Hunter. Their work critically explores the intersections of art and ecology through interdisciplinary collaboration with scientists, technologists and communities. They have produced projects that address flooding, land degradation, air pollution and climate modelling. Site-based works have been located in a hydropower station, disused steelworks, a laboratory for ice simulation, an abandoned copper mine and museum collections. Working with scientists from Royal Holloway University of London, University College London, Kings College London, University of Cambridge they have produced exhibitions and installations, performance, film and sound works. These have been shown at Tate Modern, Raven Row Gallery, Baltic Arts Centre, ICA, The Showroom Gallery, Delfina Foundation and Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art.
