Annette Hegel and Deborah Margo. Bringing together scent, sound, light
and three-dimensional elements, it is a representation of bumble bee
culture. Variations in the size of the sculptures in the installation,
shifts in the volume of sound, emerging scent, changing light
conditions, and the tactile nature of the plant components, make this
work an immersive experience.

“My interdisciplinary practice is driven by a keen interest in the
power of storytelling and the connections I see between contemporary
society, the human psyche, and our relationship with the natural world.
The works in Beauty and Folly combine metaphor, material, moving image and sound to examine the psychological complexities of living in a shifting world.” “My works assign personal and altered narratives to familiar objects
and stories, transforming them to reorient thinking about our
relationships with the planet, other species, and each other. They draw
on the female body and voice (often my own) as a frame of reference, and
on the influence of ecology, pop culture, and myth. The gallery becomes
a place where we can re- conceive our interconnections with the organic
and inorganic world, and where moments of self-awareness and unease are
translated into shared experiences and wonder.” The opening night vernissage & reception will take place at the OSA Main Gallery in the ByWard Market on
Thursday February 21, 2019 from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Admission is free.
This free exhibition runs from February 21 to March 31, 2019.
