Ros’s exhibition at POP is a response to inaction in political decision- making on climate change. Through the media of drawing, her work explores discourse on climate change at United Nations conferences. The negotiations and countless speeches on the topic over the last two decades appear to have achieved little real action with nations and their representatives often ‘talking past each other’. Talking Past Each Other has an exhibition focus thus related to the intersection of art, communication, science and environment. As a response to concerns about our changing climate, artists and curators in several countries have developed work recently that links these. The goal of climate change art can be seen as twofold: aesthetic and activist. The aesthetic objective relates to media and form, and the activist dimension arises from this, and raises questions of ethical and anthropogenic responsibility.
