SPARK #11: The Future Is In Your Mouth
Saturday 20th May, 11-1

Paradise Works, East Philip Street, Salford M3 7LE

Chris Alton will lead a tour of his solo show Tied to Everything Else and a workshop about the role that language plays in shaping our perception of the world, particularly with regard to the climate crisis.

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe” John Muir, My First Summer in the Sierra, 1911

Tied to Everything Else brings together an array of artworks produced by Chris Alton over the last 7 years, which address the climate crisis in some way. This body of works includes; textile banners, videos, a typeface, drawings, posters, and a publication.

Whilst this exhibition’s overarching concern is the climate crisis, Chris’s works also address other phenomena to which the climate crisis is tied, including; Britain’s colonial history, neoliberal capitalism, tax avoidance, nuclear infrastructure, deluge myths, extreme weather, extinction, and migration, amongst others.
