In the solo exhibition Hyper Rhizome Diana Scherer presents thirteen new works. Interweaving Scherer’s ongoing study of plant root systems, this exhibition presents a layered examination of how biological material can be transformed into sustainable textile. From a root-bound maxi dress to a knotted radicle tapestry, the exhibition explores the human-nature relationship and our compulsion to control our natural environment.
