Gardens & Grottoes speculates on messy entanglements between more-than-human agencies within cavernous garden aesthetics. In our time of anthropogenic impact, this interdisciplinary investigation proposes an immersed and enmeshed conception of humanity using paint, sculpture, video and installation practices. Through movement, multi-sensory engagement and the blurring of bodies, the exhibition invites intimate encounters with the beings present.
Sarah Carlson is a painter, video and installation artist completing her MFA in the Interdisciplinary Masters of Art, Media and Design program at OCAD University.
