One Planet, One Chance – Exhibition

With global temperatures on the rise and recent headlines alluding to Britain’s “hottest summer ever”, artist and environmental activist Leah Wood teams up with Hampstead’s Zebra One Gallery in a timely, thought-provoking and powerful exhibition. One Planet, One Chance features works celebrating the earth, sea and its incredible animals, marine-life and ecosystems that urgently need our help. Curated by Wood and Zebra One Gallery’s Gabrielle Du Plooy, the exhibition showcases pieces including Damien Hirst’s Cherry Blossom series, Bob Dylan’s sunflower and countryside paintings, and Andy Warhol’s iconic Flowers.

A host of artists who share Leah and Gabrielle’s passion for conservation have also contributed work to the project, including photographer El Hardwick, whose bold images explore the ways in which we can heal a damaged planet; Chris Fallows’ photographic encounters with wild animals in extraordinary moments will be on show; we can expect pieces by urban artist, Dom Pattinson and provocative, international painter and sculptor Mason Storm, while Leah Wood will display her own paintings of the planet’s rich flora and fauna. She tells us: “My passions are art, painting, and my ambassador work for Cool Earth, so I’m proud to combine these to raise money and awareness for Cool Earth and Sea Shepherd at such a critical time for the planet. We must continue to take urgent climate action to protect rainforest and support people who live there.”

Gabrielle Du Plooy explains: “With World Environment Day coming up on 5 June, there has never been a more vital time to take action. We have one planet and one chance. We are proud to have so many incredible artists who share our passion, many of whom have captured incredible natural wonders up close and provided them for this show, and others who have seen the devastating impact humans have had on the planet and explore that in the exhibition and, more importantly, what we can do to help it heal.”

The exhibition will launch with a VIP Private View at Koppel Project on 2 June and will open to the public on 3 June, before moving to Zebra One Gallerys virtual exhibition with key pieces available to view in person at the Hampstead gallery until 16 June.
