Burrinja Climate Change Biennale presents


George Akl

Dec. 3, 2022 ~ Feb. 11, 2023 | aerie gallery at Burrinja

Top 50 Green Emotions provides an opportunity to reflect on the multidimensional complexities of climate change.

A deeply distilled documentary presented in a rhizomatic installation. Allowing the viewer to go on an adventure via their own political aesthetics by exploring the cacophony of voices, images, theories, propaganda, geo-politics and personal interests that have been captured in the work.

artist's bio

George Akl is an interdisciplinary artist based in Melbourne/Naarm. Top 50 Green Emotions, an expanded installation and the first iteration of his debut public art project, aims to unravel the political complexities of climate change through the lens of human emotion. The work, which he began conceiving in 2020, was produced amidst the chaos of COVID-19, lockdowns and the turbulence of the global social, political and environmental climate. Now presented in Burrinja’s aerie gallery, the work attempts to dismantle and then reconstruct the elements of filmmaking in order to expose the similarities and rawness of feelings behind competing voices in the climate change debate.
