Informed by a deep appreciation for the natural world and how diverse forms of life might peacefully coexist
20 October – 20 November 2022
Zoe Amor’s Architecture of a dream is a mothership for visionary compositions and meditations on culturally and ecologically significant microcosms.
From the studio and on loan from private collections; drawings, paintings, mono-prints and works in process from the Antarctica, Black Earth and Biome series give imagination to evolving scientific and cultural perspectives on diverse forms of life in the soil, waters, space, our bodies and the various spheres of the Earth.
Drawn from the deep reservoir of the conscious and unconscious mind, Architecture of a dream is also about love – of life affirming ways of being in the world and making them real.
