Erica Grimm, Zuzana Vasko and Emily Arnett have collaborated on Murmurations, a new exhibit at the Fort Gallery.
But they have brought in creative elements from others, including Robert Bringhurst, Joanna Macy, Thomas Berry, Catherine Keller, Pope Francis, Tim Lilburn, Jan Zwicky. They are quoted in the exhibit inspired by birds.
Murmuration is the flying formations created by starlings who fly as a unit without crashing into each other.
The artists in this exhibit have incorporated elements into an installation that both address the complexity and fragility of life on a planet in the midst of a changing system.
The exhibit is on Thursday, Nov. 15 to Dec. 9. Find out more at fortgallery.ca.
