In Her Garden: Amanda McCavour and Jannick Deslauriers
September 30, 2023 - February 20, 2024, Art Gallery
In Her Garden: Amanda McCavour and Jannick Deslauriers is a two-in-one exhibition of immersive art installations. One is a botanical garden and the other, a dystopian world. Merging biblical events with futuristic prediction, In Her Garden envisions the epic narrative of humanity’s path from happy beginnings to eventual environmental devastation.
Experience the past, present, and future of our planet, coursing from bliss to abyss.
