Merging the boundaries between the artificial and the natural, Shona Wilson incorporates found plastic with organic and plant based material to create exceptionally delicate assemblages and sculptures. Delicate and beautiful in materiality, texture and form, her works open a conversation on our sense of self and our place in the ecosphere.

The exhibition's opening will coincide with a discussion titled
Art & The Environment. Commencing at 2.30pm, it will feature discussion from the artist Shona Wilson alongside Guy Abrahams, director of Art + Environment; Tasmin O'Neill, editor and director of Green Magazine; and Linda Williams, associate professor of art, environment and cultural studies at RMIT University.
