Edward Burtynsky at Canada House

Canada House
1 January 2013 - 28 February 2014

The work of Edward Burtynsky explores nature transformed through industry, creating an interesting dialogue between 'attraction and repulsion, seduction and fear'. Subjects from recycling yards to mine tailings, quarries to refineries, are investigated as 'metaphors to the dilemma of our modern existence', provoking interesting questions around man's consumption of the natural world and our simultaneous desire to preserve it.

Burtynsky began his career capturing Canada's unspoiled landscapes before turning his focus to the depleting natural world future generations look to inherit. Broad themes on the human invasion of land are explored in his series Manufactured Landscapes (2003) Before the Flood (2003), China (2005), Oil (2009) and Water (2013). Burtynsky remains one of Canada's most celebrated artists, and a selection of his work is on display at Canada House throughout February 2014.The Canada House gallery is open free Monday - Friday 11am - 5:45pm in London's Trafalgar Square.
