Janice Wright Cheney & Jennifer Lee Wiebe: Attending the Apocalypse
Online at the UNB Art Centre
Dates: April 3 – May 31 (extended)
Conceived in full before the pandemic, ATTENDING THE APOCALYPSE by Jennifer Lee Wiebe and Janice Wright Cheney has become eerily prophetic as we face down the reality of our present global situation.
ATTENDING THE APOCALYPSE
Both social media and mycelia are part of massive systems of communication. Not fixed, these networks have the capacity to propagate and grow organically. They extend their reach, responsive and adaptive to their environment. Most importantly, they are both nourished by the rich ground of decaying systems. ATTENDING THE APOCALYPSE shows us the inevitable cycle of decay and rebirth, that civilizations, like forests, eventually topple and die.
It is prophetic to present this exhibition virtually. We are all attending the apocalypse and we are relying on the very systems that Jennifer Lee Wiebe and Janice Wright Cheney discuss in their work.
