Sediment Spirit: Towards the Activation of Art in the Anthropocene

15th October 2023 – 30th March 2024
The Sainsbury Centre. University of East Anglia, Norfolk Road, Norwich NR4 7TJ

An ancestor of modern humans, living some 600,000 thousand years ago, a member of Homo heidelbergensis, made a refined hand-axe one day out of a piece of local flint, near what is today Happisburgh on the coast of Norfolk in the UK. More recently, this piece of worked flint was found there by Robert Ferguson, a director of the charity ‘Explorers Against Extinction’. The flint was registered with the British museum and allowed for use in this artwork.
