Lily Mixe : Symbiosis - (continued)
Lily Mixe SYMBIOSIS was forced to close due to the 2nd lockdown… That Art Gallery has now reopened and the show goes on!
The natural world is a place of extreme beauty and brutality. From microscopic to larger than life organisms that inhabit earth, there is a precarious and fragile balance between life and death. Every non domesticated plant or animal is fighting for survival - for space, food, the chance to reproduce. Finally everything dies to make way for the younger, fitter and faster. Within this chaos a strange order exists, moments of the sublime and displays of engineering genius, whether it be the dividing of a single cell, the pattern on a poisonous snake, fungus overtaking a tree, or a luminous coral reef providing shelter to school of fish. In very corner of our planet there are signs that there is a grand design to nature, animals coexisting, complimenting and benefiting one another is a kind of opera or theatre of survival.
Mangotsfield Folly is a 12-month creative programme of site specific commissions in the inner garden on a disused railway station platform.
