Networks Australia | Tree Conversations
Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 4pm
Trees are our interdependants in global and local ecosystems. They take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen for us to breathe. They are our environmental partners.
Conversations between trees and artists form the basis of this exhibition. Depicted in a variety of media, the exhibition speaks of our love and wonder for trees and forests.
Recent research has discovered the amazing way in which trees communicate with each. Subterranean networks of tree roots and symbiotic mycelium webs share nutrients and relay electrical and chemical messages between trees.
Through weaving, wrapping, crocheting, dying, and drawing 19 textile artists from the ACT and NSW explore the intricate relationship between human creativity and this secret life of trees.
Networks Australia began in 2008, links artists who are interested in exploring the social, political and environmental themes relating to nets and networking.
Featuring works by:
