Mycelium: Interdependence in the Undergrowth

Hosted by Harbourfront Centre

Location

Harbourfront Centre, 235 Queens Quay W, Toronto, ON, M5J 2G8, Canada

Wy Joung Kou uses fungus artistically to touch on topics like grief and upheaval in this tactile exhibition.

This mosaic art reflects the thriving ecology and abundance of life in places seemingly full of decay and stillness. It highlights the growth patterns, movement, beauty and commotion created by the interdependent organisms that exist all around the forest floor’s detritus. It captures a snapshot of the creatures who make homes in the undergrowth, taking time to create places of belonging in seemingly inhospitable spaces. The symbiosis surrounding life, death and transformation in environments like these suggests that when we move together through grief and upheaval – like the fall and decay of a tree — we might find a new home for all of us; a place held tight in the arms of the mycelium. This event is presented as part of CoMotion Festival.

This commissioned work of art is available in the Marilyn Brewer Community Space.
