GroundWork Gallery’s end-of-year exhibition “ Nature’s Mysterious Networks “ is a timely one for this season. It explores and celebrates mushrooms, mycelia and yeasts, some of the more mysterious growths in nature.
The exhibition is spectacular, dominated by Chris Drury’s magnificent floor to ceiling fungi installations and wall drawings. It is also experimental. Alongside Chris are 5 women artists bringing a whole series of innovations, experiments with growing cultures and remarkable results from fungal investigations. The exhibition conveys how both mushrooms and mycelia are fascinating, evocative and useful. Mushrooms possess very contrasting characteristics, as they can be delicious to eat and powerful sources of life for the earth, but also represent the death knell for vulnerable plants and people.
The purpose of this exhibition is to encourage the public to appreciate more about the entire world of mushrooms above and below ground, and the deep connections that they share with the environment.
