Strange Nature


June 25 - September 5, 2010

Humans are natural creatures, yet we set ourselves apart from nature through the cultural systems and objects we’ve created. The artists inStrange Nature work with natural materials to explore the ways we think about, interact with, and alter nature. Jennifer Angus wants us to think about the essential role played by insects in world ecology, presenting her elaborate dollhouse worlds populated by insect people. Vancouver artist, Robin Ripley’s work, Threnody, is composed of gathered, sorted and mended leaves pinned to the wall—acts of conservation and transformation that point to the natural cycles of life, death and rebirth. Like an interpreter, Mary Anne Barkhouse situates her work between the two worlds of the human and the natural. Using animal forms in conjunction with luxurious materials and settings, her work reflects on our often skewed experience of nature as a resource for our human needs rather than an ecosystem with its own intrinsic value.
