Gerri Harden: Birds, Bees and Ambergris
June 7, 6-9pm.
Harden’s unusual and brilliant exhibition fixates on habitat loss, the effects of pesticide use, and the shocking amounts of non-biodegradable waste in the oceans. This installation-based exhibition takes the visitor on a journey through a series of created environments. Harden has often utilized anthropomorphic animals to communicate her concerns and ideas through her artworks that are sculptural-based and intuitive in their construction. Many of these artworks are created from recycled materials, adding deeper meaning to the exhibit’s narrative. Harden hopes that her stylised creatures and messages resonate with viewers, encouraging them to contemplate how they might be a part of the solution to these troubling environmental issues.
