Tree Whispers

Can trees talk? Can you hear their whispers?

Tree Whispers, an exhibition by members of Networks Australia, shares fresh insights into the world of trees. Providing audiences with thought-provoking exhibitions since 2010, this group of artists from ACT and regional NSW present unique works in a diversity of mediums that will share secrets from the mysterious lives of our leafy companions.

Trees feature in our mythologies and are embedded in our psyche. When we think of family trees or branches of science, we are invoking the forms and growth habits of our arboreal companions. We see them as allegories and use them as metaphors for aspects of our own existence. Throughout the exhibition, the underlying message from the artists is a poetic call to action. A plea to join the conversation, to recognise the importance trees have in the ecosystem of our planet and to value their existence as being vital to our own.
