For The Love Of Trees

Event
Burrinja’s creative response to the devastating June storm event.

The forests of the Dandenong Ranges are intimately woven into the threads of our lives, our community. “For the Love of Trees” delves deeply into this myriad of experiences, reminiscences and imaginings. Into the past, present and future of the forest that surrounds us. It is at once an immersive art experience, a curated exhibition and an invitation to participate.

Curated Group Exhibition - Burrinja Gallery

In response to the devastating wide-spread and unprecedented June ’21 storm in the Dandenong Ranges Burrinja presents a creative recovery project ‘For the Love of Trees’ with a group exhibition at its centre that reflects on our complicated relationship with trees in this country.

Through a range of artworks the exhibition presents aspects that not only reflect on our appreciation and love for trees but also hints at a destructive relationship in the past and present.

The Paradise Garden ~ a speculative future forest installation | aerie creative ecology

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.
