Now in its 5th year, Eden Unearthed: art in the gardens is an installation art exhibition located in the fantastic 2.5 acre showcase gardens at Eden Gardens in Macquarie Park. It’s a smorgasbord of art, with light and sound works, sculptural pieces, ephemeral installations and more all using the garden as a muse, where plants are entwined with art and the environment morphs into the artwork itself. Allan Giddy, one of the three selection judges and Director of The Environmental Research Initiative for Art (ERIA) UNSW A&D said: “Opportunities like this, arising out of a genuine desire to support and propagate (to use a horticultural metaphor) visual art, serve both to expand the field of practice, and also to expose the general public to the latest in 21st century visual thinking”. Opening in November, the open air exhibition is running for 6 months, and focuses on the three pillars of Sustainability: Social, Environmental and Economic, and pays artists stipends to take part as well as offering a $10,000 first prize.
