Two artists explore the intersection of nature and technology.
Humanity's place in the natural world will be called into question at Carlton's LAB-14, as part of a brand new exhibition running from March 23 to April 12. On display at the Carlton Connect Initiative's exhibition space, Naturophilia combines the work of a pair of acclaimed Australian artists and examines the point where nature and technology intersect.
Curated by the University of Melbourne's Dr Renee Beale, the free three-week show will feature painted, charcoal and sculptural works from Sydney's Peter Sharp, whose annual expeditions through the outback inform his ongoing exploration of our relationship with the land on which we live. Likewise, one of the country's leading print-makers, Melbourne's Martin King, will hit on similar themes, in what Beale describes as an exhibition that asks "whether we will use our tools, technology and imagination to reacquaint ourselves with the natural world".
