Rising Tide serves as a wake-up call that shows that climate change is an unstoppable force that can only be slowed down. Kadir van Lohuizen uses his personal artistic vision and discipline to reflect on the consequences of the climate crisis for the rising sea levels across the world. He travelled to locations including Greenland, Bangladesh, Papua New Guinea, Panama, Kiribati, Fiji, Jakarta, Miami, New York, and the Netherlands to investigate and visualize the impact of rising water levels. Van Lohuizen spoke with policymakers and ordinary people in order to highlight different perspectives on the issue. Through photographs and films, the Rising Tide exhibition shows the human stories behind the alarming statistics and sketches a confrontational vision of the near future.
