SWARM

In 2019, Alke curated SWARM: Artists respond to the pollinator crisis  at Walthamstow's Vestry House Museum.  In SWARM,  artists Anna Alcock, Hannah Ford, Miyuki Kasahara, Alke Schmidt and Sandie Sutton responded to this crisis with new work that drew on the latest research into the causes of the alarming decline of pollinators. Featuring painting, printmaking, textiles, sculpture and installation, the exhibition was both a call to arms and a celebration of these wondrous and hard-working insects that are so vital to our food security. This gallery shows Alke's work made for this exhibition as well as installation shots of the exhibition.
