Academic contributes to exhibition considering future of the ash tree


01 Feburary 2018

Dr Magz Hall, Senior Lecturer in the School of Media, Art and Design, is collaborating with a range of local and national artists, designers and makers, to create an assembly of works around the uncertain future of the ash tree.

The sound and radio artist believes that her personal experience of the tree means it may not completely disappear. Find out more on Magz’s blog.

Ash dieback, also known as Hymenoscphus fraxineus fungus, is a serious disease that is killing ash trees across Europe. 

The Ash Archive, at the University of Kent’s Studio 3 Gallery in Canterbury, showcases a collection of objects, artworks, poems and drawings which considers the human relationship with the ash tree and woodlands. The exhibition, which is being held in the Jarman Building, will run until Saturday, 14 April.

Magz also has a radio installation called Dream Space 2 in the Art for the Environment exhibition at Nunnery Gallery London, Bow Arts, which is open until 18 March.
