Clive Adams talks past, present, future, and soil
Clive Adams, the founder of the Centre for Contemporary Arts in the Natural World (CCANW), talked to us about the successful and varied work of CCANW as well as the organisation's life in several different homes.
Clive explained that he is interested in "basing exhibitions on academic research but presenting them in an accessible way". He used the example of the Olympics; "an extreme reflection of the everyday turned into a spectacle", in many ways art is the same thing.
As well as discussing CCANW's projects, Clive also talked about its home.
I was intrigued by the way Clive talked about CCANW as a house of cards, but the fundamental point; that will stick with me; was the way he took the company in a positive new direction, which would have not transpired if they had not lost the funding.
In 2013, Clive negotiated an office space in the Innovation Centre on the University of Exeter's campus. In this new space, CCANW is unable to host residencies or artists in-house. The brilliant thing about this is they can begin to foster a new way of working, with other people and organisations.
Something that struck me about Clive was his genuine desire for authentic collaboration.
Clive suggested that we, as humans, are intelligent enough to know exactly what we are supposed to be doing, but we choose not to do it. Nature is an expanding concept without parameters, and as animals we are a part of this system and need to develop with it.
Thank you Clive, you taught me that a house of cards isn't always a bad thing.
