Double expo: Beauty and urgency

This double exhibition illustrates our January-February 2023 theme of climate justice:

‘Laudato Sí’ exhibition

The deacon-artist Jacques Bihin has produced some remarkable photographs of nature. They are almost always spherical images that seem to depict the environment and nature as a ‘small planet’. He uses the stereographic camera from not so long ago. The photographs show both the beauty of creation and its fragility. Quotes from Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Sí underline the urgency to act.

‘Destruction and hope’ exhibition

A second, smaller section explores more urgency. With photos and statements by Antonio Guterres and others, ‘the cry of the earth’ is highlighted. There is also space for solidarity organisations that are strengthening local communities to deal with the climate crisis.

The opening will take place on Saturday 16 January, in the presence of the artist. This follows the climate justice vigil.
