“Janet Tavener’s long awaited photographic series, Amphibious Assault was inspired by an event in 2017, where seaweed containing seeds and micro-organisms from the other side of the globe were found on an Antarctic beach. Featuring Janet’s iconic photographic prints on circular ChromaLuxe, as well as works on paper, the series looks to the threat of non-Indigenous seeds, microorganisms, and potentially plastic and chemical contaminants to our marine environments.
As our Artist in Focus for the months of September and October, Janet discussed the process of making these works, as well as the ideas behind the series.”
