Extraction: Art on the Edge of the Abyss is an ongoing project for artists to explore the extractive industry in all its forms.
The book, Extraction: The Megazine is a catalogue and exhibition guide to the many artworks produced for the project.
Check out the website, and get a taste of some of the art (ranging from poetry to photographs to paintings and much more) and the many exhibitions around the country planned for summer 2021.
I’m really glad this topic is being explored by projects like this. Mining — extraction of “natural resources” — is the most destructive human activity on Earth. We must stop it, if we have any hope of a future, not just we humans but all we living beings on this planet.
