Coming Up:


There is something inherently old-world about greenhouses. They represent our cultural desire, born of the Enlightenment, to collect, categorise and control our surrounding natural environment. And yet, there is also a touch of the primeval about these murky, mildewed constructions and their tendency toward the exotic and overgrown – a genetic recollection, perhaps, of a distant past spent roaming steaming jungles…

SUPER NATURAL SUBLIME envisions a post-apocalyptic, phantasmagorical greenhouse; one which fuses cheap theme-park spectacle with a DIY approach to natural history and the generation of artefacts. One part ghost-ride, one part ecological nightmare; this installation demonstrates the bizarre paradox of humankind’s simultaneous fetishism and complicit destruction of the natural world.
