Solar Skin by Siobhán McDonald
The body of work that makes up the backbone of the exhibition is a series of more than 120 objects that relate to the dying glaciers and that bring the elements of contemporary engineering together with prehistory in the use of carbon and charred bone.
One of the pieces, Solar Skin, pictured here, represents the Sun. It is made of burnished calf skin, woven basalt and smoked paper.
