‘En route’ a new art exhibition in Melbourne, Australia will be shown at the Heide Museum of modern art from November 9th, 2019 to February 2nd, 2020. It seems like life is growing from the walls of the modernist building, the flora totally reigns this art installation and it’s absolutely stunning to look at.
Australia’s Heide museum of modern art presents artists Wona Bae and Charlie Lawler of loose leaf studio with their spatial contemporary design work entitled ‘en route.’
‘Heide is one of our favorite architectural sites and it is a privilege to have had such incredible access to this historic space, creating contemporary work that engages with the vision that john and Sunday reed had for the house’artist Charlie Lawler.
Marking their first public museum presentation, these large-scale art installations, comprised of lush gatherings of leaves, create an experiential journey within the iconic modernist building Heide II and encourages viewers to consider the relationship between human activity and the environment might hold. All of this through modern art that truly makes you wonder about all life’s aspects.
‘Through a series of site-specific interventions, we present the natural world as the protagonist with an active voice and central role. With En route we invite visitors to imagine a time when these familiar yet foreign natural forms gradually engulf the building at Heide II, rolling down hallways and over walls.’
