This event is part of Invasion Ecology: online conversations - a series of discussions with artists and writers around the themes of the group exhibition Invasion Ecology. The exhibition, presented by Radical Ecology and Southcombe Barn, questions what we mean by ‘native’ and what it means to belong - reimagining more empathic connections between humans, plants, animals and landscapes.

Yan Wang Preston is a visual artist interested in landscape representation, identity, migration, and the environment. With photography as her primary medium, her solo, collaborative, and participatory projects employ still and moving images, sound, performance, installation, and the artist book to explore complex ideas from multiple angles.

Ashish Ghadiali is Radical Ecology’s Founder/Director. He is Co-Chair (with Professor Paul Gilroy) of the Black Atlantic Innovation Network and Co-Principal Investigator (with Professor Tim Lenton) of Addressing the New Denialism, a programme of research and public engagement backed by the Open Society Foundations that culminated in the influential 2023 paper, Quantifying the Human Cost of Global Warming (of which he is also co-author) for the journal Nature Sustainability. Ashish is a regular contributor to The Guardian and The Observer and a practising filmmaker with recent credits including the video installation, Invasion Ecology (2024), the immersive film installation, Planetary Imagination (2023) for The Box and the feature documentary The Confession (2016) for the British Film Institute and BBC Storyville.
