Exhibited in 3D Poolside, Warringah Aquatic Centre, curated by Bronwen Dugan. Drifting dreamily in trees by the poolside The Unfurling explores ideas about the importance of sanctuary for us all, having the opportunity to escape from our everyday struggles. We are all subject to forces beyond our control but a taking a breath of air, connecting with precious natural environments can nourish and transform us so we are ready to face the world once again with renewed hope and resilience.
A site responsive installation exhibited at the historic Coal Loader, Waverton, as part of the North Sydney Art Prize, curated by Alison Clark. The work was located on the Coal Loader Platform, surrounded by community garden beds. It extends and builds upon The Garden of Cruel Delights photographic series exploring our inter-relationships with plants.
The Coal Loader is an exchange zone between us, plants and environmental forces, where flora experience constant transformation through our destructive and constructive actions. Tactile and material interventions performed on living plants are utilised to examine concepts such as empathy, control, adaptation to showcase the power of plants to lead us to better futures.
