Eliza-Jane Gilchrist is a visual and performance artist based in regional Victoria. Her sculptural practice involves reinventing discarded materials.
Strange Garden is an installation made from cardboard, representing an abstract garden. It is a participatory exhibition that requires direct involvement and engagement from visitors and families. Participants will draw with black markers on flat, cardboard shapes that are specifically designed to fit together to form 3D organic shapes. These are added to the large cardboard ‘garden’ that is embellished and enlivened with every addition.
Strange Garden grows into a beautiful community built installation that participants enjoy walking through, looking at, playing in and contributing to.
