Anthony King of Nature Magazine writes about Science Gallery Dublin’s “In Case of Emergency” exhibition and mentions The Apocalypse Project and An Olfactory Portrait of the Amazon Rainforest!
“Artist Catherine Sarah Young plays with sensory pleasure of a different sort in An Olfactory Portrait of the Amazon Rainforest. Eight pungent perfumes guide us through the shrinking Amazon. Inspired by a stay in the jungle, Young created the scents — including ‘Earth’, ‘Spices’ and ‘Lianas’ — hoping to provoke an urge to conserve through this most visceral sense, bound tight to memories. She founded the inter- disciplinary Apocalypse Project in 2013, to raise awareness on climate change through art–science works and collaborations. The original Greek meaning of ‘apocalypse’ is, she reminds, ‘lifting of the veil’.”
