Jennie Thwing, a 2019 New Work Grantee, presents a new exhibition: “Pest in the Garden”
Pest in the Garden is an installation featuring a cut-paper animation and wall mural. In the animation, a garden grows as insect-humans emerge from flowers. The installation hints at man’s love for nature and resulting parasitic tendencies. It is also a metaphor for the relationship between parents and their children. The wall mural includes leaves and flowers cut by 25+ volunteers of all ages.
