Berkshire Botanical Garden
Berkshire artist Madeline Schwartzman brings an ecological approach to art and design in “Face Nature.” This exhibition provides examples of humans appearing in close proximity to plants in a unique experimental art practice featuring installations on the human body that form uncanny hybrids and present a vehicle for mutual subjectivity. Her anthropocentric practice aims to create a crack in human awareness and serve as an antidote to passivity and inaction surrounding the future of nature. The exhibition includes both human-scaled photographic portraits and moving images that convey how skin and nature collide and integrate.
