Being Human at Base Camp
Saturday 29 April – Sunday 2 July 2017
In April 2016, Cumbrian artist Derek Eland, became the first ever artist in residence at Everest Base Camp, living in a temporary community with 1000 people, as they prepared to climb to the summit. This exhibition, which opens at Rheged ahead of a world tour, uses photography, handwritten accounts collected from people at Base Camp using the artist’s unique “diary room” approach, social media and video to tell the story of Derek’s 6 week residency as he tried to understand what it was like to be ‘human’ at Base Camp.10am – 5pm Free entry
