    I take my hat off to you, Sir, (a)earth looks great.

    In @earth, Kennard uses the book format to reflect upon the increasingly decadent and disturbing trends of contemporary capitalism and its drive to war and environmental destruction. However, there are also images in the book and show that reflect upon the potential for change and transformation, offering hope amid the darkness.

    Peter Kennard … is an heir to the revolutionary artists of the early twentieth century

    Perfection ... [Peter Kennard's] photomontages juxtapose jarringly precise imagery, linking supposedly faraway threats with the idea of home, reminding us that his work should be our work, inhabiting as we do, only one world that floats in a black, empty void.

    What you hold in your hands is a harrowing X-ray of the shadow side of the world … If there's a word that's worth a thousand pictures, it's (a)earth

    Kennard’s collages are carefully considered, satirical and frequently disturbing takes on political hegemony. Politically engaged art is often accused of merely pointing out the world’s troubles; @earth burns with forty years of a continual refusal to accept the status quo.

  • Rated 5 out of 5

    Ever since the countercultural '60's, images of the Earth photographed from space have become one of our most potent symbols for ideas of community and shared destiny. In (a)earth, Peter Kennard takes this tradition and turns it around, using photomontage to depict the planet as something broken and abused, ripped apart by the divisive forces of militaism, capitalism, and industrialism.
