Simryn Gill’s latest exhibition project, Here art grows on trees, will be presented in the Australian Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia.
Curated by Catherine de Zegher, the exhibition is conceived as a site-specific project featuring significant new work by Gill that is made in her customary way—in the places she lives, and through her many long-standing relationships with makers, assistants, interlocutors and galleries.
Through their formal presence and the manner of their creation, these works offer a view into our inhabitation of local circumstances in a world that is becoming smaller and flatter.
“Here art grows on trees presents Gill’s works on paper, being of vegetation, as a cog in the whole system of turning wheels, as a link in the chain, in the string of gems that the world is offering—a cyclic instead of linear worldview,” says de Zegher.
