Usually it’s just dust settling, but in the wake of our first annual GrowOp exhibition exploring landscape and space, with many installations incorporating live plants, gardens and even chickens into their design, it’s been more like dirt.
We just wanted to take the time to look back and enjoy some of the great media responses to Grow Op.
Like THIS Torontoist article by Chris Riddell with photos by Corbin Smith…
“Grow Op’s art installations incorporate living things—and things that only seem to be alive”
And THIS interview with GrowOp curator Victoria Taylor in Design Lines
“It is vegetation’s urban resilience – as increasingly seen inside office buildings with living walls such as the one pictured here – that informs her work.”
And THIS from Andrea Carson at VOCA
“all the pieces are worth seeing, particularly the hanging plants by Ryan Taylor and Jane Hutton’s Fluorescent puts cross sectioned branches under black light. They glow naturally, showing the chlorophyll. Who knew?”
Thanks to all the participants, media supporters and excited public who attended our first annual GrowOp. All dirt aside, we are already getting excited for next year’s exhibition!
