Gardens & Grottoes speculates on messy entanglements between more-than-human agencies within cavernous garden aesthetics. In our time of anthropogenic impact, this interdisciplinary investigation proposes an immersed and enmeshed conception of humanity using paint, sculpture, video and installation practices. Through movement, multi-sensory engagement and blurring of bodies, this MFA thesis exhibition invites intimate encounters with the beings present.

 

Sarah Carlson is a painter, video and installation artist completing her MFA in the IAMD program at OCAD University. She earned her honours BFA in film production and studio art at York University in 2009, and BEd at University of Toronto in 2010. She has been a resident artist in Algonquin Provincial Park, Miguasha National Park, Toronto Islands, Dawson City Yukon, Barcelona Spain and Florence Italy. Her work explores expanded subjectivities within more-than-human worlds.
