Creating a temporary habitat of the borrowed, procured and hand grown, artist Rashanna Rashied-Walker has created a site-based installation that explores how we relate to nature.
What is nature, what is wilderness, what is wild? Is it a distant idea or is it all encompassing? Is an age old tree growing in a city lot any different from an ancient tree thriving deep within the forest?
By blurring these lines we are faced with a unique wilderness that invites us to reconsider the plants, trees, cracks, and crevices that make up our reality.
Rashanna Rashied-Walker: “I do nothing extraordinary, really. I only highlight what others might fail to see”
