Loft 275


by Felicity Gordon

Engagement, collaboration and permaculture have long formed the basis of Felicity Gordon’s work. Germinate invites community members to engage with nature by growing some of their own food. Gallery visitors will be able to sow a food plant seed to germinate at home.

By coming closer to nature, visitors will be able to gain an appreciation of the enchanting and naturally occurring systems of decay and renewal.

Using collage, worried paper, violent splashes and pools of ink the works mimic microscopic underground communities of bacteria and fungi.  It is a mostly unknown world of immense power and diversity.  

With support from the Banyule Enviro Team.

Exhibition Dates: 17 November – 05 December 2021
