With the site-specific installation DO YOU KNOW NOTHING? Critchley responds to T.S. Eliot’s poem The Waste Land. The furniture of a hotel room appears mounted above an imaginary flood line. In her interpretation, Critchley considers the dissolution of boundaries between past and future in a world disturbed by climate change.
“Critchley is interested in the psychology of our response to climate change; how environmental catastrophes are playing out around us, yet for the most part in the west we remain disengaged and indifferent. The room has become a space that floods at high tide, where the person has adjusted to a make shift way of living with this continual flooding.” (Emma Critchley)
