8′ x 12′ Acrylic on aluminum composite panels.
Visitors were encouraged to watch and converse with Shackleton as she created the mural over a two week period. Following the indoor presentation, and in partnership with the AGN, the Town of Cobourg, Downtown Cobourg BIA, Lakefront Utility Services, and a local landlord, the artwork was installed on an exterior wall in the downtown core.
In this piece, urban and wild environments collide in search of growth. Shackleton combines melting glaciers, burnt trees and flooded streets to ask pressing questions about our future. How will we adapt and grow in the face of rising temperatures and water levels? What is truly at stake as our climate changes–the planet or humanity?
