The Arrangements: assembling nature
How do we engage with the natural world when we are distanced from it?
Can living with art inform the art of living in these times of great certainty?
Artist Catherine Truman tackles these questions in an engaging and unorthodox exhibtion of curious objects, hybrid plants, vessels and moving images at Carrick Hill, Adelaide's iconic period house museum and gardens.
In response to a year long residency, the artist investigates the impact of climate change, loss of biodiversity and the fragility of the natural world. The works are integrated into the intimate domestic spaces of the house museum positioned alongside Carrick Hill's extraordinary art collection, disrupting, challenging and conversing with the space and audiences.
This project has been assested by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its art funding and advisory body.
