ADAPTATION EXHIBITON – 6 MAY to 10 JUNE 2012

Exploring the microbe to the macro, and everything in-between, Adaptation is SymbioticA’s art and ecology research project.

Exhibition Overview


The Adaptation exhibition features the projects undertaken by the Adaptation artists in residence embedded in Lake Clifton, south of Mandurah, WA, from 2008 to 2012.  Lake Clifton as a location and as a metaphor, offers a microcosmic peak into the broader issues of ecology and life itself.

Adaptation broadly scopes issues spanning the creation of life, indigenous culture, colonisation, scientific discovery, developmental booms, to fragility in the face of climate change.

Outcomes of SymbioticA’s Adaptation residency and collaboration projects will be showcased in this exhibition.
