You Must Carry Me Now: The Cultural Lives of Endangered Species

Bryndis Snæbjörnsdóttir/Mark Wilson

Co-curated by Dr. Ron Broglio and Heather Sealy Lineberry in collaboration with the ASU Global Institute of Sustainability and ASU School of Languages and Literatures.

Over a two year period, artists Bryndis Snæbjörnsdóttir (Iceland) and Mark Wilson (England) explored the networks and ripple effects of scientific conservation initiatives in Arizona. In a kind of vertical slice of our natural environment, they focused on the reintroduction of the chub in the Colorado River and the condor in the Grand Canyon. Their exhibition of interactive installations, photographs, videos and objects at the ASU Art Museum conveyed how ecologies can change radically as a result of tiny individual initiatives by human or other agencies. The artists’ book documents the exhibition and includes essays by Ron Broglio, Amanda Boetzkes, Æsa Sigurjónsdóttir, Cary Wolfe, Ron Broglio and the artists, and introduction by Heather Sealy Lineberry.
