Connect & Grow is a group exhibition which brings together a collective body of work from five artists; Pari Naderi, Ulrike Oberlack, Sarah Adams, Sonia Davin-Smith and John Watts.
Combining the artists’ diverse practices, including painting, photography, digital imagery and video projection, they investigate the link between choreography and horticulture, movement and change, the natural and the man-made.
Drawing upon the ideas and processes from the 2014 Human-Nature programme, the artists present a range of visual responses to the season of events and exhibitions, from three-dimensional choreographic scores grown from seeds to slide projections playing with light in natural and imaginary landscapes. The exhibition is the culmination an eight month professional development programme, led by Naderi, where the artists worked together to challenge and develop their practices in relation to choreography and nature.
Human-Nature is a yearlong programme conceived by Siobhan Davies Dance exploring the interdependent relationship between people and plants.
