Opening Event: Saturday 13 October, 1-4pm
To be alive is to be wild. And we humans have a will that shapes the world with language, song, lust, labour and play. And for those of us who connect with it, a network of machines now extends our reach, amplifies our urges and quickens our exchanges. The artists in this exhibition work and play with living organisms and technical things, systems and language, to explore how our relation to the natural world is changing. Gallery visitors (humans and dogs) are invited to view videos, interact with art installations and social media and undertake walks in the surrounding park with its other animals and edible plants.
The opening event is co-hosted with The Festival of Mint - A Celebration of Local Growing - serving mint tea and mojito made with fresh mint grown locally.
