We’re thrilled to present the first collection of mycelial sculptures from artist and evolutionary biologist Victoria Pham in our Project Space within our second annual BETTER NATURE Art + Events program.
Spanning art, technology and science, Frozen Fungi unearths the complex thread-like network of mycelium, the underground messenger mushroom that unifies ecosystems and exchanges resources between plants, to form mycelial sculptures that envisions future possibilities of creating bio-fabricated materials, grown with Nature as a collaborator.
Within her interdisciplinary practice, Pham foregrounds Nature as a fundamental collaborator, creating artefacts that invite audiences to listen to the Earth and to view mushrooms beyond their culinary, psychedelic or poisonous characteristics.
