Amy Pekal (she/her b. 1993, New York) creates situated artistic investigations located at the intersection of nature and culture to address climate breakdown as an ecological, ethical, social, and political urgency. She utilizes fieldwork and qualitative data to develop artworks that help communities, individuals, and institutions transition to a climate-just future. The paintings, sculpture, performative texts, and participatory events which emerge from the research process operate both as objects to generate discourse and as facilitation tools to encounter indeterminacy while at the same time look for co-authorship and collaboration. In doing so, she builds, across difference, infrastructures for living as naturecultures.
