WHATS ON IN THE AERIE

The Paradise Garden

By Jordan Sibley

December 4th, 2021 to March 5, 2022

The Paradise Garden is a hopeful speculation about the future of the Dandenong Ranges forest; this future will see humans living harmoniously with nature, supporting and being supported by the forest. The installation will place the viewer under a canopy of vines that miniature creatures live within, and aims to engage an optimistic discourse about the forest of the future.

The aerie gallery can be found on the first floor at Burrinja Cultural Centre.

WHATS COMING UP

Mists and Shadows

by Rebecca Murray

12 March – 23 April

A photography exhibition that documents places where nature and signs and symbols of human habitation intersect. To shed light on the complex and varied relationships we have with the land in the Ranges both present and past. And to look to the future to explore: how can we be in and alongside nature without taking or compromising too much?
