Naive Botany: A Natural History Guide to Installation Practice

August 16, 2018 @ 9:00 am - August 18, 2018 @ 4:00 pm

In the nineteenth century, ‘botanizing’ became a craze. It was something you did on the seashore, in the meadows, or on the sidewalk. It was the act of observing, collecting, and identifying, in an attempt to understand the world in terms of its almost infinite myriad forms and faces. It was a way to become both lost and found. With botanizing as its framework, this course explores ways in which we might translate our daily observations and practices into another space and form such as a gallery installation. As starting points, this might include re-inhabiting the routine of a daily walk, identifying unconscious collection practices, or ways to rethink an already existing art or craft practice in terms of scale and experience. We will spend the course in discussion over examples and theories of installation, and take advantage of the natural setting of Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre to immerse ourselves in the creation of individual, barely begun, well-conceived, yet wildly imagined, installation proposals.
