13 April – 1 July

Switzerland’s 1816 ‘year without a summer’, which provided the backdrop for the conception of Frankenstein, was part of a three-year period of severe climate deterioration. Chloe Dewe Mathews returned to the glaciers 200 years later, and the resulting photographs explore the environmental and social issues of our time through the themes of Mary Shelley’s novel.

Press reviews

'Two hundred years on, Dewe Mathews’ project demonstrates that [Frankenstein] is still being reinterpreted in ways the 18-year-old author could never have imagined – even in her wildest dreams.' –  The Guardian
