Through varied photographic processes, Planetary Gardening examines symbiotic relationships between the cultural and the chemical, the organic and the technological, and the agency of human and non-human actors.
Bringing together the work of ten mid-career and established artists working nationally and internationally, the works explore how artists have tended to the ecologies of the environment, society, and subjectivity, and considers the effects of our collective cultivation compulsions in shaping our planet and ourselves.
