The ongoing, process-based installation, titled The Mycological Twist, will become a permanent fixture in Jupiter Woods’ garden space, changing and growing with the new gallery as it finds its solid ground. The cumulative, dynamic nature of the installation mirrors that of the gallery’s inaugural summer show, Thank You, a deconstructive and deconstructed group exhibition that danced around various media, which in turn danced around itself.
This particular installation comes after the discovery of the gallery garden’s proximity to toxic waste, and the “consequent interest in the cleansing and healing ability of certain types of mushrooms”. The resulting installation shows the growth of nine varieties of the fungus, and will be accompanied by various events throughout the weekend, including a “Shroom Music & Myco_educational_VJ-set” on Thursday, a video premier on Friday, a mushroom brunch and video series presentation on Saturday, and an already booked-out mushroom dinner on Sunday.
