Tamara Henderson: Green in the Grooves

6 Oct-31 Dec 2023
PV 5 Oct 2023, 6.30-9.30pm

Camden Art Centre
London NW3 6DG

Overview

Taking audiences on a journey through her creative process, from experiments made in her studio and garden in Australia, to a major new film commission, a series of 12 paintings, a sound installation, and ceramic, glass and bronze sculptures, Henderson brings our senses into contact with realms that are beyond the reach of everyday experience, and positions the imagination as a vital tool in shaping and radically informing a new tomorrow.

The exhibition speaks to the vital energy that flows through the infinite channels of life, the mossy crevices between stones or the green light that emanates from within vegetal tissues. Drawing attention to cyclical processes in the environment, Henderson’s project reveals humanity’s intervention in global patterns of decomposition, regeneration and metamorphosis and how such human interactions can accelerate and destabilise the delicate balance required to sustain earthly life as we know it. In an age saturated by the digital, Henderson’s work brings us back into materials – to the analogue and hand-made, to process and experimentation – giving rise to a distinctive artistic language and an animistic worldview, exploring how we are implicated in wider cosmologies that relate us to the planet and to the universe.
