Mikhail Karikis: Ferocious Love

27 July – 22 November 2020

Ferocious Love 2020 is a new audio-visual installation from Mikhail Karikis, made in collaboration with students and activists. Inspired by young people’s environmental activism, the installation focuses on emotional responses and the need for mutual care in the face of the climate crisis.

Karikis and his collaborators imagine a possible future where the climate has drastically changed and seasons have become unrecognisable. The Liverpool Socialist Singers have recorded a new sound composition of weather-like effects, interpreting the noises of wildfires, flooding and other extreme weather. Alongside this, a video installation created with students from Birmingham City University reflects on the potential for calamity to bring communities together.

This exhibition is part of Tate Liverpool’s annual We Have Your Art Gallery project, with Birmingham City University acting as this year’s commissioning partner.
