With Charles H. Scott Gallery
Pollen Index explores the ideologies and economics of floriculture through the creation of a small flower shop in the gallery window of the Charles H. Scott. Similar to vendor stalls in the nearby Granville Island Market, floral arrangements will be made upon request for the duration of the exhibition. Arrangement designs will reveal the co-evolutionary relationship between human desire and botanical reproduction.
This project was presented as part of Rust Never Sleeps: Growth and Decay in the Making of Art exhibition. Pollen Index was made possible with support from the Canada Council for the Arts.
