Green (Screen) Dreams

January - October 2018

Green (screen) Dreams by Brazilian-born artist Rodrigo Lebrun, introduced us to the imaginary town of ‘Sunthorpe’ and its popular tourist attractions.

Commissioned by Invisible Dust, Lebrun used an intentional typo, Sunthorpe (Scunthorpe), to express unrealised utopias, current challenges and future aspirations.

In this installation at SPARK:York, Lebrun explored the challenges faced by a community whose identity is rooted in industry and the relationship between industrialisation, globalisation and climate change in North Lincolnshire – a region particularly vulnerable to pollution, floods and rising sea levels.
