Painter and Transart Alumnus Shark Roth addresses the idea that as climate impacts deliver us to a novel global frontier, the role of artist as inventor, custodian and presenter of story takes on a great charge. The Transart Triennale theme serves as a lens to consider internal rewilding as eco-system restoration.
