TERRA ATTUNE 


  The Re-Attunement of Terrestrial Life and Planet  ︎
 

  
Terra Attune CIC is a not-for-profit arts organisation based in the UK, attuning with communities to their environment through Art.

We have a site-specific and site-sensitive approach to each project, working with waste materials found and collected in the landscapes surrounding each community.  

Our commitment is to educate and inform a generation of custodians about the environmental issues we face today; to craft solutions and weave social tapestries in preparation of a symbiotic future.

We collaborate across disciplines, experimenting with varied artistic mediums, drawing on a wide range of creative experience; including sculpture, moving image, photography and performance.

We see Art as life, Art as spiritual practice and Art as the bonding force between Terra and all spirits.

CETUS, THE WHALE 





Cetus is an eight meter long sculpture of a humpback whale woven entirely from Ghost Gear gathered from the seven bays surrounding Padstow, made in collaboration with Beach Guardian CIC, their volunteers, and young people from the local community.

Andrew first met Beach Guardian Charity whilst competing on ‘The Big Flower Fight’ Netflix show where he built a seahorse using their waste alongside plants.

Upon winning the show Andrew went on to exhibit the Whale at Kew Gardens in August 2020.

After hearing that the steel structure would be scrapped, he quickly arranged the delivery of the Whale to Beach Guardians headquarters at Trevisker Garden Centre where the whale would then be re-woven entirely from Ghost Gear, the most destructive form of marine debris.

Here began the collaboration between Andrew Whittle and Grace Emily Manning and the transmutation into Terra Attune CIC.

Over the G7 Summit Cetus was installed at St Issey Primary School for a visit by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson and at Crowd Funder headquaters in Newquay for a screening and Q&A for ‘Seaspiracy’; a Netflix film highlighting corruption within global fishing standards.

The sculpture can be visited at Beach Guardians HQ, Trevisker Garden Centre in Padstow.
