Come for an informal presentation and discussion with The LAB's exhibiting artists in the context of their latest work. Meet the members of Fabulandia: Terra, Q & A will follow. Fabulandia is a two-part exhibition that speculates on the world of the future. A fantastical place, filled with new strains of plants and odd creatures that inhabit a mysterious landscape barely recognizable as planet Earth. The first in the Fabulandia series, Terra, presents the work of six artists envisioning this futuristic environment - an overloaded world that meshes the natural with the artificial in a landscape filled with sleek urban-scapes, extraordinary gardens and terrains of the impossible. Rather like an analog vision of a digital future, the exhibition ranges from carefully rendered works on paper depicting futuristic plants and structures to post-apocalyptic landscapes made from plumbing supplies and motorized shrubbery. Welcome to a place called Fabulandia, where low-tech and high-tech collide in a hybridized vision of the future.
Fauna opens in January 2006 with a look at the drastically altered creatures that populate the terrain of Fabulandia. Press release.
