Exhibition Opening + Artist Talk


Heavy trees, arms and legs by Nicola Farquhar and Sorawit Songsataya opens at The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū this Friday, 23 April, in partnership with The Physics Room. Please join the gallery for an artist talk at 4:30pm and the opening event at 5:30pm, if you are in Whakatū Nelson.⠀

‘Heavy trees, arms and legs’ is a line from Rebecca Tamás’ poem Palermo. The weight of limbs—branches, bones, roots, tendons—anchors this exhibition of new works by Nicola Farquhar and Sorawit Songsataya. Heavy trees, arms and legs recognises gravity as a compositional force that shapes us as living bodies, and connects us with elements in the natural world. The exhibition considers the potential of imagined forms to generate more fluid understandings of the environment we are a part of.
