Donna Davis - Unseen
Fri 01 Jun - Thu 14 Jun
RESIDENCY | EXHIBITION | WORKSHOP | TALKS
Donna Davis navigates the intersection between art and science to develop works that capture and create sites of ecological observation.
During her residency, Donna will explore ecological connections between plants, fungi and animals with reference to the Northern Bettong, present her exhibition Unseen, and deliver workshops and artist’s talks with ecologist Dr Sapphire McMullan-Fisher.
Unseen artistically explores interspecies relationships, investigating the intricate web of unseen connections with reference to plants and fungi.
Unseen is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. Donna Davis is supported by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, state and territory governments. This project is also supported by the Queensland Herbarium, centre for research and information on Queensland ecosystems, plants and fungi.
