Grow Op 2019

GROW OP 2019 created & produced by the Gladstone Hotel

Grow Op at the Gladstone Hotel celebrates its seventh year with an exhibition of art, design and ideas across a range of disciplines. The 2019 edition considers ENERGY; Clean energy, dirty energy, social energy, positive energy, negative energy, climate energy, embodied energy, resilient energy. Do we hoard, waste, commodify, burn it, or do we store, reuse, renew it?  How humans and other species live within and without natural systems of growth, change, abundance, scarcity, decay and life.

Curated by Christine Leu and Alan Webb of LeuWebb Projects, with Lee Petrie, Exhibitions Director, Gladstone Hotel.

STATEMENT

This project responds to the theme of Grow Op this year by considering the term energy in relational terms, as experienced by diverse organisms and social systems.  This biodegradable and consumable artwork simultaneously considers the energy required in the absorption of light for the production of chlorophyll, the nutrient energy of plants to humans and in their consumption, the social forces ascribing value to foods and fads, gentrification of communities, and the energy used in artificially controlling and maintaining plants.
