Art Exhibition: If a Tree Falls in a Forest

Highlight two distinct, yet often interwoven imaginaries of nature

By San Sheng Art Space

Featuring works by Peishan Huang and Maria Simmons, If a Tree Falls in a Forest brings together a collection of lens-based multimedia works that highlight two distinct, yet often interwoven imaginaries of nature. Huang’s work creates momentary fractures within a hyper-urbanized mediation of nature, while Simmons engenders a move towards more-than-human agents as carriers of knowledge. From artificial landscapes to folklore about overturned trees as portals, from deep forests to forgotten buildings, the artworks in this exhibition evoke the duality of human desires to both step into and aside from nature at a threshold in which the imaginaries collide.
