Our spectacular Eden Unearthed exhibition returns for its fourth year featuring over 40 stunning installations set amongst the breathtaking gardens at Eden. Each work captures an exceptional and ephemeral environmental element, often using recycled materials and plant products.
Eden Unearthed is the largest privately-funded exhibition of its kind in Australia. The fabulous outdoor display garden features floating, suspended, sculptural and sound installations.
There will be forty installations, all capturing something exceptional and ephemeral about our environment, focusing on recycled materials and plant products.
The works focus on environmental issues such as recycling, drought and climate change, and many utilise recycled materials and plant products. The largest privately funded exhibition of its kind in Australia
