Sarah Rayner, A short story from a long tale, 2018, hand-carved porcelain
The force that through the green fuse drives the flower is an ambitious exhibition project that sets out to re-create the abundant and biodiverse natural ecosystems of the Noosa region – inside Noosa Regional Gallery – while also exploring how humans interact with and coexist with this space. Taking its title from the Dylan Thomas poem, the exhibition sets out to consider and convey the interconnectedness of nature and humankind, the energy and force that flows through each and the cycle of life and destruction that makes it wondrous and sublime. The entirety of Noosa Regional Gallery’s exhibition spaces will be transformed into a visual, conceptual and immersive representation of the Biosphere ecology, articulating and underscoring the diversity, interconnectedness and beauty of the ecosystem while exploring the way we interact with, learn from and rely on this environment.
