An exhibition by Olivia Sparrow in the foyer. Since 2017, herself and her partner have been documenting their time together through texts, photographs and videos, acting not only as a document of love but also as an archive of the experiences of two working class, trans and queer identities and sexualities.

Climate change is melting permafrost soils that have been frozen for thousands of years, and as the soils melt they are releasing ancient monstrous viruses, aliens, and bacteria that, having lain dormant, are springing back to life. After the Ice, the Deluge is a long term project, figuring relationships between the melting polar ice caps and other traumatised, abject, alien, and outsider bodies - queering the question of survival towards less boundaried ways of being in crisis.
