Wona Bae and Charlie Lawler are known for their experiential installations that navigate instinctive and symbiotic connections between people and nature.
For En Route the artists have created site-specific immersive artworks that respond spatially and temporally to the modernist building, Heide II. Using botanical material and a language of texture and reduction, they deconstruct familiar forms and compose new landscapes to be considered and explored. Bae and Lawler present the natural world as active and central in an era of polarisation, inequality, inaction and apathy.
The exhibition combines installation, sculpture, two-dimensional artworks, and photographs documenting ephemeral interventions made by the artists over several months in the surrounds of Heide and beyond.
