16 March - 19 May 2012
A new commission for SCAF, Janet Laurence’s After Eden explores our experiential and cultural relationship with the natural world. Janet addresses the destruction of the environment, with particular emphasis on the plight of animals, while simultaneously recognising notions of healing and caring.
Janet’s work echoes architecture but retains strong organic qualities and a sense of instability and transience. It occupies the meeting places of art, science, imagination and memory. Profoundly aware of the interconnection of all life forms, Janet often produces work in response to specific sites or environments using a diverse range of materials. Alchemical transformation and history are underlying themes.
Fugitive, a new iteration of Janet Laurence: After Eden, was shown at TarraWarra Museum of Art as part of their exhibition Animate/Inanimate – 29 June – 6 October 2013.
