Works explore ideas of natural creation and human interference: drawings (embedded in the tradition of botany) suggest possible evolutionary pathways, dried plant specimens examine mutations and exquisite 3D printed forms imagine hypothetical seedpod fossils, while the animations reflect research into the movement, growth development and evolutionary changes of plants.
Watch My Garden Grow is a chance to see some of Melis’ work from the Oriel Davies touring exhibition Flora and also includes brand new work developed as part of her recent ACW supported R&D residency at the National Institute for Product Design and Research.
This exhibition of beautiful, curious and playful forms intends to provoke questions about our natural environment and the way in which we, as humans, interact with it.
The exhibition will open at 4.15 on Saturday the 17th of October with a performance by sound artist Jobina Tinnemans.
Jobina creates exquisite music inspired by such things as her Pembrokeshire coastline home, placing traditional instruments (piano, cello, clarinet) next to more unusual sounds: knitting needles, paper turning and field recordings from her local coastline.
