Event Description

This exhibition showcased a large-scale site-specific group visual arts project “intended to encourage residents to push their own expectations and abilities to explore ideas and new practices.” The project built on existing interactive art projects at KWCC, in particular their dignity trees, which are present on each of their six units. The tree is a symbolic gesture signifying the wishes and intents of residents to those entrusted with their care. The tree is also a symbol of growth and prosperity. Residents worked together with visual artist Lorraine Cross using steel wire, aluminium sheeting, and LED lighting to create two interconnected trees; a young, growing tree that meets and connects with an older more experienced tree.
