This immersive audio-visual installation by Greek-British artist Mikhail Karikis, made in collaboration with students and activists, focuses on young people’s views of the future in the face of the climate crisis.
Ferocious Love 2020 is a new work by Karikis inspired by young people’s environmental activism. The installation imagines a future where the climate has drastically changed, the seasons unrecognisable, and asks if this environmental disaster would bring us closer as a society or tear us apart.
The piece has been made in collaboration with the Liverpool Socialist Singers, who have interpreted the sound of weather calamities like wildfires or flooding, and with students from Birmingham City University, who have created a film reflecting on the potential for disaster to bring people together. The exhibition is this year’s Tate Liverpool’s annual We Have Your Art Gallery commission, in which artists work with communities to produce a collaborative artwork.
