Unground Collective, a group of 11 national and international artists who met during the MA in Art and Ecology at Goldsmiths University London. Works by Unground Collective engage in critical understandings of climate and ecology as interlinked with dispossession, social justice, colonial and capitalist extraction and an unfolding ecocide.
The collective have previously exhibited together at ‘Interim’, 2023, Goldsmiths, London, ‘MA Art & Ecology Degree Show 2023’, Goldsmiths, London and ‘Journal in Art and Ecology’ event and online publication 2023/4. The works aim to challenge modes of communication and interaction through highlighting the interconnection between people, landscape and non-human agents and explore embodied relations and responses to ecology. Unground Collective features artists Aliansyah Caniago (Indonesia), Sirun Chen (China), Rhiannon Hunter (UK), Linnea Johnels (Sweden), Jane Lawson (UK), Sam Metz (UK), Sohorab Rabbey ( Bangladesh) , Tina Ribarits (Germany), Elizabeth Salazar (Venezuela/UK), Amanda Simons (UK), Ella Wong (Hong Kong).

The exhibition Shifting Grounds will feature works by Unground Collective. Shifting Grounds is a temporal meeting space where ancestral knowledge and corporeal explorations, archival investigations, neuroqueering, expanded fieldwork, ceremonies and mundane acts of everyday ecological care converge and overlap through the artist’s film, sculpture and sound and performance. In the unpredictability of this ecological epoch, works in Shifting Grounds linger in interstitial moments creating bonds where uncomfortable truths may rest side by side with ambiguous lichens, ghostly winds, mud and monsters that mingle as soothsayers of this moment.
