Lydia Needle is an art eco-activist, a maker of gentle protests. In her work she contemplates our impact on the earth, what we denude or enhance, our planet, our communities.
She uses waste, eco or vintage textiles materials to create a dialogue around the environmental impact of textiles and its human costs.
She is the Lead Artist and Curator of the ongoing collaborative creative project called ‘FIFTY BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things’. The FIFTY BEES presentation creates a unique narrative between works and artists. It makes explicit how pollinators are completely interlinked with our ecosystem.
