What happens when global warming sparks a new ice age? In her environmentally conscious installation, Richardson offered a taste of an altered world through her transformation of the gallery into a satiric spectacle of a “post-glacial” trade show complete with fashion, food, entertainment and survival gear essentials.
“My solo exhibition titled Inter-Glacial Free Trade Agency examined the relationship between governments and corporations through the guise of a trade show. Here I focused specifically on the end products being marketed to the public; fashionable survival gear in the event we are thrust back into an ice age as a result of global warming. All items were branded with the same logo convincing the viewer that in the ‘new world’ there is only one choice.”
